#Teal Pumpkin Project

We are participated in the #TealPumpkinProject and I wanted to share some photos on a teal pumpkin I made.

I didn't want to use a real pumpkin because I wanted to be able to use this pumpkin every year so I bought a white craft pumpkin at Target ($13) and  acrylic paint from Walmart  (.50 a bottle). I painted the pumpkin a Tuscan Teal color.

Pictured below is my finished teal pumpkin and in the middle picture is the blue pumpkin I used to hold all my non-candy treats for the little Trick-or-Treaters. The non-candy treats included: erasers, eyeball bounce balls, rubber bracelets, beaded necklaces, army men and spider rings. I posted this sign on our front door.  We had Trick or Treat last weekend and kids loved the non-candy treats.

Very nice! We used a real pumpkin this year, but I'm thinking a more permanent one might be nice next time around. Where did you get the blue trick-or-treat bucket? I was hoping to get one of those myself.
