Pumpkins!

I am still in the decorating mode and I wanted to make some white pumpkins! I had plenty of orange ones so I just used those and of course used my trusty spray paint to make them the color I wanted. I sprayed them an ivory because they looked much more natural.
I put some round stickers on them before painting them and then pulled them off and I then had my orange circles already made!
I cut out some felt circles of different sizes. I glued the felt circles to a block of wood and used them like a stamp by dipping them in the paint. I made the rest of the dots black and purple! I then painted the stems a lighter green because the white spray paint had covered the original color.
So Welcome to my decorated dining room! This sign is made out of black and white felt and I found it for 1/2 price at Shopko!
 I sat the large pumpkins on some black caldron's to add some height. I left them white and decorated them with black, white, and purple ribbon.
 I had an old green vine garland that I spray painted black and intertwined  a black shiny garland through it.
                               I added a spider to the top of the pumpkin.
  I needed an old crow in the middle of the pumpkins, he just is sitting there watching over his flock of pumpkins!
                     These are the little witches soaring above my dining table.

                                 

                                     I then added some little goblins of my own!

 I decided that those little goblins needed some pumpkins of their own to decorate so it was off to the pumpkin patch, just down the road to find the perfect pumpkins!
                                     Pumpkins as far as your eye could see!
                                 They really had a fascination with the green ones!
                                         Here, Grandma is the perfect one!

                                     This is his perfect one! (It is so little and cute!)
                                Not sure if this spooky guy is safe or not!
                                                   On to the decorating!
                                      Still loving his cute little pumpkin!
                         We just needed a witches hat to put on this witchy pumpkin!

                                    Bugs always make a pumpkin more spooky!
It was fun seeing the creative side of boys, there are no girly pumpkins here!!
                                It was a fun day decorating with pumpkins! Hope you have as much fun as we did with decorating pumpkins!

I think we should make a visit to the pumpkin patch a tradition for every year. It was AWESOME! I may have to steal a picture of Ty in his spiderman costume for a post :)
Thanks for the fun time!

Loved the post! I'm hosting a Halloween party for the kids next weekend and now need to add bugs to the list of things for decorating pumpkins. The boys will love it! Thank you also for posting this on my blog and linking up, I greatly appreciate the support.

Love the boys' pumpkins! The witch one is so clever! I never thought about gluing bugs or spiders on them. My daughter will probably like that idea.

I love your decor! Love that you used those purple ribbons and put that spider on top of the one pumpkin, so cute and spooky! I also love your polka dots!

Donene, those are some of the most festive pumpkins I've ever seen. The more I see white ones used in decorating, the more I'm beginning to like them.

Thanks for linking to my party. It's fun to see what you link up each week.
