PAINTED PUMPKINS...CHALKBOARD STYLE

just when i thought i was getting better with it...yet another item has fallen victim to my chalkboard paint addiction...i really was in the process of putting it away...when the idea of painting one of those craft pumpkins popped into my head...i mean...what was i to do?...just ignore it?...

so...headed over to micheals and picked up (and paid for) one of those black plastic pumpkins...slapped two coats of chalkboard paint on it...and now it's ready to go!...

i promise...the paint has been put away now...it's out of sight...but not out of mind!...

 
****check out my linky party directory on the sidebar to see where i'm linking to this week!...

Very cute. I just saw some medium sized pumpkins at Dollar Tree, might have to pick up a few and try this!

Laurie said...

Oh, man. What an awesome idea! You could even write Happy Thanksgiving on it in a few weeks! TFS!

i know the feeling and i think others are the same way with vinyl...no surface is safe!

Jennifer said...

Too CUTE!!! I just picked up some chalk board paint recently and I can see how it can get out of hand. LOL! (= Thanks for the inspiration! (=

Visiting today from NFF. I love the name of your blog and the chalkboard pumpkin. So cute.

Karla said...

HI - I made some of these too. Super easy & fun. I used REAL pumpkins, but I want to try the artificial pumpkins. I'm just starting my chalkboard paint projects. Check me out at http://thrumypeepers.blogspot.com/2010/09/chalkboard-paint-pumpkins.html

Lucky's Luna said...

I love your idea! It would be great as a sign for those that leave treats out for trick or treaters! I see a lot of comments about giveaways, I totally suggest you guys use this chalkboard pumpkin to announce the winner! How cute would that be?

Tonia said...

I'm heading out to Michael's today, so you know I've got to pick up a black pumpkin & pull out my chalkboard paint. I'm new to the chalkboard painting and it's definitely addicting.

Tonia said...

PS - It's great to see another blogger from West Virginia. Let me know if you'd be interested in doing a guest post - I'd love to have you.

Megan @ Polish The Stars.com said...

Girl, can't believe Im seeing this right. Yay,m I'd say you are the quenn of chalboard paint, and now you've probably painted everything possible, lol. This is a SUPER idea, and you can totally use this all through fall, hey prob even the whole year, its surely cute enough. I would really LOVE for you to come link up to my party **6 weeks 2 Spook**, this is really awesome, and I would love to have you. Thanks, Bella :)

Thanks for sharing :)

Libby said...

That is just too cool...I was thinking using a real pumpkin then I wouldn't have to store it (too small house too many projects) and we'd get a pumpkin pie out of it to boot!
