101 Things to Do with Pumpkins

I think I can say that I have been on a pumpkin craze lately! What can I say! The dollar store pumpkins are such a good deal that I have come up with lots of fun things to do with them!


OK maybe not 101 things but I think it's getting there LOL!


You know what I am talking about if you have read my last few posts. Well yesterday I decided to try something different. I used chalkboard paint.


I know you have seen it before but not on these pumpkins. Remember they are only $1.

Fun! Fun! Fun!

The first one I rubbed the chalk all over to pick up this great texture.


Then I did some plain and wrote on them! After all thats what you do with chalkboard paint!!!


I put it all together with another dollar store item. A creepy googly eyed spider!


I think they are adorable!


Pin It

OK what kind of ideas can you come up with? I am addicted!

 I think I may have one or two more coming......
is that 101 yet... heehee!

Very cute -- a great way to even transform pumpkins from years gone by that are looking 'tired' :)

I never thought of the dollar store! I am headed that way to get some. I am a pink shabby girl, so you can imagine what mine will look like!
