Creations, Painted Halloween Bucket Fun

“Why are you making funny looking pumpkins, Gigi?” asked Super Boy [7]

“Yeah Gigi, why are you painting punkins and cannee corns?” echoed Big E [3]


“I’m making these for the beach house,”  I said


And off they went, in search of a popsicle…


The good news is that they knew they were pumpkins!

    Buckets of fun from you Jenna! I like the idea of a face on one side so you and spin your galvanized pumpkins around.:)

  2. Janet Lynn says:

    What a wonderful idea! I have a couple buckets similar to these and I know at least one of them will become a pumpkin! Love the faces – must keep : ))

  3. Lots of fun, Jenna! I like the faces!

    I love that the kids always have questions! Cute idea:@)

  6. Judy Pimperl says:

    Very whimsical idea! I think I would use them without faces, and they could stay out until Thanksgiving that way…they’re cute either way though. Love the way you used the pen and paintbrush handles to make the curls.

  7. Sally says:

    Yeah, Gigi…why are you painting the grass orange? (sorry, just had to)
