Painted Pumpkins

At Thanksgiving dinner, my grandma had a craft station set up for the kids. She had each child choose a pumpkin to decorate as soon as they arrived. Then she set each child and pumpkin at a table with bowls of glitter, eyeballs, sequins and pots of paint. The kids loved it and it was so nice to see them all spending time with their great grandma.  All cousins, big and small were helping – her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

My grandma is one of the best DIYers that I know. When I was a kid and I used to visit her in Florida, we would spend hours at craft stores and then come home and make everything from wreaths, scrunchies, painted shoes and shirts.  I loved it!

Here are some of Grandma’s art “students” hard at work:
