I got this crazy idea from a catalog last year, and I couldn’t wait to try it out.  Let me just tell you, I crack up every time I see these pumpkins.  They’re hilarious.  Last year I painted such beautiful gilded pumpkins, but this year, I’m just getting silly.  Because life’s too short not to get a little crazy and have some fun, right?  :-)

The pumpkins are just your standard store bought variety, ‘mattified’ with a little craft paint.  After brushing on a taupe colored craft paint, I minimized the coverage by wiping it off with a paper towel.  My kids have a couple of Mr. Potato Heads, so we used the parts to make the faces after I made holes with my drill bit.

** Reader comment update: these ‘Potato Head’ kits are available at Target in their Halloween section, woo hoo!

My DIY magnolia leaf wreath is holding up beautifully!  The rug I found last year at Pier One.

Isn’t it fun to get a little crazy at Halloween?

Even if it’s just with a family photo.
