I had grand plans. I was inspired to create the beautiful table-scape of painted pumpkins pictured below.
“How hard could it be?” I pondered. Surely painting pumpkins is not rocket science. I had my supplies ready. According to other blogs, all you need is a little craft paint and pumpkins and you are good to go. Things seemed to be going well.
I taped up the stems.
I even enlisted a couple of helpers. (Only one was photo-ready.)
This may be where things started to go wrong. I was picturing something like the pumpkin below.
But, my helpers had other ideas.
And this. . . .
So, at the end of the day, our painted pumpkins look nothing like the inspirational photo. I have to admit, I still love them. Despite not looking like the inspirational photo, I am going to count this one as a success. They are the perfect decor for our Thanksgiving day table.
