Instead of carving pumpkins this year I decided to skip the mess and roll with something a bit more crafty. I painted two pumpkins and I really can't decide which I'm happier with. The feather pumpkin was inspired by this Martha carving. I spray painted a pumpkin white and drew a feather freehand (first in pencil and then filled in with black glitter paint. The glittered feather probably would have looked prettier on a natural white pumpkin, but you work with what you've got. The other pumpkin was done with chalkboard paint, so there are unlimited ways to design and enjoy it. I tried a traditional jack o lantern, a cat and finally landed on another nod to the feather theme. Which pumpkin do you prefer?
I hope you've enjoyed this week of feathered projects... check in tomorrow for a few more feathers 'Simply Styled.'
