Frugal Nest Fluffing {Chalkboard Pumpkins}

Chalkboard Pumpkins


Supplies Needed

A pair of rubber gloves 
{Your hands will get covered with paint! I learned the hard way!}

Ground covering{I repurposed my Full Circle Farm box}

A can of Chalkboard Spray Paint


Pumpkins! 

I felt that the box did a good job containing the overspray and drips

It takes 2 coats to get the best coverage.

Here are the ones that I made


I had the pumpkins from our trip to Spooner Farm



Glamorous Directions

APPLY gloves


Set pumpkins in the middle of your box or ground cover

Spray pumpkins with Chalkboard spray paint


Let dry

Spray a 2nd coat

Let dry

Write on you pumpkin

Tie raffia bow

Add an embelishment such as a festive bell


These chalkboard pumpkins are extra fab~frugal because they will transistion to November and Thanksgiving!

Consider pumpkins saying:

Give thanks
Thankful
Blessed
Harvest
