I've been having fun with my mini pumpkins today.
I usually buy the little white ones, but since they weren't available at the time,
I bought some orange ones to alter.
As a painter by trade, I have painted a plethora of colors,
but the one color which I find the most exciting to paint with is........Black!
I think it's because it seems like such a taboo color for a wall.
But fear not. If you don't have a wall to paint black,
paint pumpkins instead!
Why only white or orange, I say.......
What's cooler than a black pumpkin?
I decided to paint spider webs on them.
Since I never leave well enough alone,
I thought it would be even cooler to add
glow-in-the-dark paint to the webs,
so that in the dark they're the only thing you see.
But why stop at spider webs?
It's just not Halloween without skeletons.
If you've never used glow-in-the-dark paint,
you just need to paint a light color first,
then paint the glow paint over it when it's dry.
Don't know if I can or not,
but I'll try to take a night picture,
to show how awesome it looks.
If you're not into painting, I have another option for you.
For this next little pumpkin,
I used short flat head straight pins and thin silver elastic cording.
I stuck the straight pins in halfway,
to make it easy to wind and stretch
the cording from pin to pin.
Then after I tied the cording off,
I pushed the pins all the way into the pumpkin.
This won't glow, but it has a very simple elegance.
A mound of these would look gorgeous
sitting on a silver platter.
Well, I've got more pumpkins to play with,
and a scary movie waiting for me,
so off I go........
