Are you ready for fall!? It starts tomorrow which means I can finally show off my fall mantle which has been decorated for like a month now. What can I say? We love fall in this house. This year, I got some cute ceramic pumpkins as a fall activity to do with the family from Oriental Trading and I thought I would share how you too can have yourself a pumpkin painting party!
Oriental Trading has so many decoration and fall-themed activities. Once I saw their mantel banner, I knew our theme. I got the kids some finger paints to use for their pumpkins and some metallic paint for the grown ups. I put some paint in little cups and got out some sponge paints brushes and we went to town! Well, everyone but Nugget, he was napping.
Each kid got to paint a couple pumpkins and I painted the trio of larger pumpkins. They were the center piece for our mantel with all the little pumpkins smiling below. I liked how the each pumpkin has the cutest smile. The kids really enjoy painting and so they were thrilled. We had the pumpkins in my office for a few weeks and every day until our painting party, they asked from sun up to sun down if it was time to paint. I’m hoping Oriental Trading has more products for other holidays because this is a family tradition that I want to keep going.
Once the pumpkins were dry, I laid out my spooky mantel flags, hung up my fall banner, and arranged the pumpkins in a nice little row. I love how each one has it’s one little personality and how each one reflects each of my kids unique personalities. My favorite part about doing crafts like this and our Easter one make things so special. Hubs loves fall and we have been working on updating our fall decorations as we hardly have any but luckily, Oriental Trading as me covered.
Have you started decorating for fall? Are you already done? I’d love to see what you got going on!
