Pumpkins DIY

by Apple Peterson in , , , ,

It's almost that time of the year, the most fun and most creative and kid-friendly event of the year. I've never experienced Halloween growing up in Sydney, Australia. I guess it's an American thing. I've heard that the idea of dressing up and going door-to-door for treats is becoming popular back home.  

Besides the generic cut-out forms that you buy from the grocery store, I've always wondered how else I could decorate that silly looking pumpkin? So I dug a little deeper this morning and checked out Martha Stewart's site as well as Pinterest ... these are just the best sites for inspiration!

I'm definitely game to try a few ... the easy ones! We picked up a few of our pumpkins a few days ago at Dell' Osso Family Farms in Lathrop, California. It's a yearly tradition except this year, one kid is away for college. Nevertheless, the kids had a great time and spent most of their time finding that perfect pumpkin!
