  1. Hey Jenny! I am a newbie blogger trying to connect with other bloggesses! I am so happy I came across this post as I will be taking my son to a Pumpkin Patch next week for the first time and am super excited! I wasn’t sure what to do with the pumpkins but now I know 🙂 🙂 thank you!!!

    Hope to connect with you soon,

    1. Iva — Glad to give you some inspiration. My oldest is in elementary school and we’re going to be getting out the power drill. He can hardly wait!

  2. I still love carved pumpkins the best. I really like the holes poked in the pumpkin though, which looks like starlight coming from the pumpkin. Cute ideas!

    1. I like carved pumpkins the best, too. But this year I decided I wanted something more. We’re getting out the power drill and making the pumpkins with the holes.

    1. The argyle pumpkins were some of my favorites. But my painting abilities just aren’t up to snuff on that one. Feel like making a couple for me 😉

  3. I love this collection! I’m planning on painting pumpkins next week so I’ll pin this for some inspiration! I’m glad I hopped over from Ladies Only Blog Share (my posts are #101 and 102)

    1. I put this collection together because I needed my own inspiration!

    1. Glad you like the collection. It was lots of fun putting together. Now which one to try out!

  4. Hey Jenny! These pumpkins are super cute! Thanks for sharing! I linked here from Get Schooled Saturday!

    1. Thanks for visiting over. I hope it inspires you to try out something new. I’m getting out the drill bit to create the pumpkin with all of the holes 🙂
