A Do It Yourself Happy Pumpkin!

This is a fun little project you could do with your little ones or just for yourself.  My friend gave me this pumpkin that she painted.
Thanks Darlene!
 Directions below ~
This is a pumpkin from the garden or the store.  Wash the pumpkin and wait for it to dry completely.  Then cut out a cute shape for the eyes that you like, for this one she cut one tear drop shape.  Trace the shape on the pumpkin with your pencil.  Dry brush the cheeks on it,  use a dusty rose color.  Then  paint the white of the eyes on the bottom, then the blue for a sparkle to the eyes and finish them off with the black and lined them and added the eye lashes.  Give it a fun smile and you are finished.  This really is a HAPPY Halloween project.
