Hubby and I made a little trip about an hour and fifteen minutes south to visit my brother-in-law and sister-in-law on their "ranch"--they've lived there for two years and this was our first visit. What took us so long?! My sister-in-law, "Mumzie," is a very creative person who decorates for the seasons beautifully, and one of her specialties is pumpkins. Before we left for home, she gifted me with the raw material (i.e., a PUMPKIN!) to make a creation of my own--she has grown her own pumpkins in a big pumpkin patch for the last couple of years and they're beauties! How lucky am I to get one?!!
Mumzie told me how she creates her masterpieces and showed me some of her decorating supplies, and because she has described her process on her blog, I can share her methods with you.
Here are a couple before and after photos.
In a series of posts, Mumzie shows us how to clean and prepare the pumpkins and then how to decorate them. Take a look a the first one HERE and then continue on by clicking on the related links at the bottom of each post. Once I've had a chance to transform my pumpkin, I'll share it with you. Happy Autumn!
