Painted Pumpkins

We got the idea to spray paint our pumpkins from All You Magazine. We chose black, yellow and silver as our spray pain colors. Evan's mother, Jane and I spent quite a while cutting out spider shapes on contact paper. Evan sprayed a yellow spot on the pumpkin and then we stuck the contact paper over the yellow spot. Then we spray painted black over the whole pumpkin. A few pumpkins turned out ok, but most of them peeled all of the paint off when we tried to pull off the spider stickers. It was still a fun project and I believe that our limited patience had something to do with the lack of success with this project. I think we will try again next year, but a whole black or silver pumpkin still looks pretty cool.
