all of the pumpkin things

The last time I attempted to be crafty it did not go very well. Check out this post for proof. So, last night when I was invited over to my friend's house for pumpkin carving and I had the bright idea to paint my pumpkins instead of carve them, I was definitely setting myself up for failure. I blame Pinterest

I used this picture for my inspiration, but made sure to stay away from the devil Chevron stripes.

Here is what I ended up with. 




Don't worry I was still a struggle and somehow ended up with gray paint in my hair. #winning. #struggle #ididitallfortheoktoberfest 

Anyway, the pumpkins are nothing to run and show the girls at A Beautiful Mess, but I have to admit they could have turned out much worse. 

Go me? Wish me luck when I attempt to make this pumpkin custard for dinner tonight with Jessi.

Linking up with Helene and Sarah.

I think your pumpkins look fabulous! Especially compared to the uncarved, unpainted, and unbedazzled ones that are currently sitting on my front step...
