My heart skipped a beat when I saw them. Making something like that was not an option. It had to be done.
I picked up some small pie pumpkins and the grocery store and pulled out my paints. Nothing too difficult at this point.
My paint colors were uninspiring, so I decided to mix my own. I actually enjoy mixing paint. It's the kid in my that likes to make a mess.
I'm happy with the way the pumpkin turned out. I think the color looks really great with the orange. It was a little hard to get a crisp line. I pulled the tape off and it wasn't perfect. I just touched it up with my steadiest hand and called it good.
There are lots of other non-carving, pumpkin decorating ideas. Here are a few others I like...
Small pumpkin display, Sharpie art pumpkin, Mummy pumpkin.
