Painted Pumpkins

Hi Friends,

I have to confess that I have felt really unorganized lately. I had all these high hopes of getting a million things done with Paper & Fox as soon as Knox started kindergarten.  It has been a month since he started and I am finally getting some organizations and Bloggy TLC done.  I am one of those people that has the tendency to take on too many things and then you lose focus on what you really love to do.  For me Fall is always feels like an opportunity for a new start.

“Life starts all over again when it gets crisp in the fall.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

I have enrolled in the Elite Blog Academy and have made a commitment to Paper & Fox  and myself to grow and flourish. So wish me luck and I will keep you posted on my journey.

Now for my project – Painted Pumpkins

Painted Pumpkins by Paper & Fox, #fall, #pumpkin, #craft

To celebrate fall, I have a simple project to add some autumn style into your home.  These guys were featured in my Fall Home Tour.

I picked up an assortment pumpkins.


With metallic spray-paint and I gave them all good copper colored coating. Then, I put on some “Real Housewives” and started decorating and painting.  Don’t tell, that I secretly love that show.

I added some bling (thumbtacks) to the larger pumpkin. There is no wrong way to paint them. This would be a great kid project. I think they turned out pretty darn good.

Happy Fall Y’all!
