Welcome to the second day of the week long Pumpkin Parade! I’m posting along with A Swell Place to Dwell and Newly Woodwards. I’ve only spent one Halloween in the US and that was back when I was a kid, so needless to say I was very excited to be here this year and be a part of the Pumpkin Parade.
Of course, we’re still tool-less and material-less around here so I tried to keep things simple. A few pumpkins in varied sizes and colors, Sharpie paint pens in white, black, and gold, and some candies. I decided to write “Trick or treat” (word per pumpkin) and open up the “treat” pumpkin so that it holds the actual treats – well, candies.
I freehanded all the words so it was pretty easy to do, but you can always print them and trace them or pencil them beforehand. I used the oil-based Sharpie pens and you just need to be a bit careful and let them dry, otherwise you might get a few smudges.
After everything was dried up I used a knife to open up the treat pumpkin and create a lid. Then I emptied it completely, let it dry, and lined it with a plastic bag and a kitchen towel before filling it up with candies.
That’s all there is to it! I hope you like the lettered pumpkins, and be sure to check out other’s Pumpkin Parade projects:
Plus, you can share your own pumpkin project by participating in the link party on Friday!
