Is there anything more magical than a trip to the pumpkin patch in the middle of fall? Crisp weather, colorful leaves falling, and the spooky anticipation of Halloween makes me giddy! Picking out the perfect pumpkin is something of an art, and I almost enjoy that more than the carving part. In fact, I don’t really enjoy carving pumpkins all that much! The goop and stringy guts all over my fingers is not my idea of a good time. So we’re swapping our carving kits for paintbrushes this season! These DIY pastel pumpkin faces are just my cup of tea this season.

A pretty palette and quirky faces make the perfect pairing for pumpkins. And our painted pumpkin templates makes this project so simple. And the best part? No pumpkin guts! Less mess, more cute, equally festive. That’s what the world needs.

We collaborated with her a few years ago on our popular succulent painted Pumpkin family post (remember?!) and those cute faces are here for a return visit!
