Halloween is over so I suppose this post is a little tardy but oh well, pumpkins can work for Thanksgiving too right? Just say yes.
I went to a pumpkin decorating party the other day and it was adorably fun. We decoupaged strips of scrapbook paper onto pumpkins. It was just as easy as it sounds, although much messier. While we were adding the paper to the pumpkins my friend (who has known me since I was five) said, “Whenever I hear the word decoupage I think of you.” It’s true folks, as a kid I was obsessed with decoupage. I would decoupage anything I could get my fingers-covered-with-dry-glue on. Picture frames, trinket boxes, binders, if you can name it I glued weird crap to it. While I’ve never decoupaged a pumpkin, the smell of glue brought back all the fun, strange memories.
This year I just didn’t get around to decorating for Halloween/fall. So it’s nice to have a few little pumpkins around to celebrate the season.
Maybe next year I’ll do a fall craft before fall is nearly over… or maybe not!
