If you’ve seen my blog, Fabulous Habits, you may have noticed that I’m all about pastels. In fact, I chose a pink and yellow piece to hang on our dining room’s primary wall. It is so me and I am so happy that hubby said yes to that decorative decision!

With family in the U.S. (we live up north in good ol’ Canada, eh?!), I’m lucky enough to celebrate two sets of Thanksgivings. I came up with these Give Thanks Pumpkins as a mini project to match our brightly-lit pastel kitchen and to get excited for our American Thanksgiving celebrations.

I always try to make the most of what we have. When I saw that we had leftover pumpkins from Halloween, I thought, “How can we transition this into our Thanksgiving décor?”

Instructions:

1. Clean and Tidy!

Lay out your garbage/newspapers on your work surface. You want to make sure that everything stays clean after your project!

2. Paint, paint, paint

Paint each of your pumpkins with a color of your choice. Paint 2-3 coats, waiting at least an hour in between each coat. Once the pumpkin is dry, paint the pumpkin stem the other color of your choice using 2 to 3 coats as well.

3. Creative Writing

This is where the creativity begins! If you’ve decided to use your freehand skills, draw out the words “Give Thanks” on each pumpkin with a pencil. Then, trace over it with a Sharpie.

4. …or Stick it On!

I opted to use stick-on letters and have decided to go for “Give” and “Thanks” on the pumpkins separately.
