I love fall! Oh wait, I wish I had a good fall! I wish the trees turned colors and my kids could run through the piles of leaves and I could snap pictures of them as they got stuck in their hair. But it’s still over a hundred degrees here and as I decorate for fall, I feel jipped. I try to teach my kids about the 4 seasons but really, we have hot and not-so-hot here in Arizona, so it’s a little tough. But I despise the snow and cold so we happily stay put, in our valley of the Sun. And dream about fall but in reality do enjoy wearing short sleeves year round. Whatever the temperature is in your neck of the woods, you can never have too much seasonal decor. I love decorating with fake pumpkins…they’d shrivel in 24 hours outdoors so I don’t really have a choice anyway… BUT I love how many decorative pumpkins are out and about to help me keep up with my plastic decor (; Here are my fav top 33 painted pumpkins, sooo cute!
The first three are step by step tutorials from us LJ twinners. Kristi whipped out her first set of patterned pumpkins years ago…then donated them to Goodwill because it wasn’t perfect. She’s crazy, doesn’t she know I always love her hand-me-downs?? Hope you enjoy all these no carve options!! (:
