Trick Your Pumpkin

See that boring old pumpkin from the dollar store? Remember how I said I wanted to change it up with some paint? Well I did it. I transformed it into a chalkboard.
I spruced up my pumpkin to enter it into the Plaid Trick Your Pumpkin contest.

I was browsing plaid paint products to decide how I wanted to trick my pumpkin. I had lots of ideas, glitter, mod podge lots of options, but ultimately decided on chalkboard paint.
There are so many different colors to choose from. I thought orange chalkboard would be fun. My local Joann's didn't have orange so I went with black, but sometime soon I will do something cool with colored chalkboard paint.
The fun thing about the chalkboard pumpkin is the ability to change up the face based on how you feel that day. It also keeps toddlers entertained for about 20 min.

Sharing the linking love
