Happy FallHappy Fall Kidville Families!  One of our favorite fall traditions is the family outing to the pumpkin patch!  Don’t you just love picking the perfect pumpkin and then proudly decorating your perfect pumpkin find?  Rather than carving your Jack-O-Lantern this year, try one of these creative alternatives.

The Studded PumpkinThis look is easily accomplished in two simple steps.  Simply paint your pumpkin and then after the pumpkin has dried apply self-adhesive gems or studs.  You can create patterns, spell out initials or cover the surface of the pumpkin.

ColorStart by deciding on a color palette or have each family member select their favorite color.  Then spray paint the pumpkins from top to bottom including the stems.  This will give you a chic monochromatic look.
