I have been waiting a year to post this!! The kids actually painted these pumpkins last year in art class, but I was too busy writing my book to edit the photos. And then all of a sudden it was Christmas. But now…here they are! Aren’t they so gorgeous?

I used this one trick which I will tell you about in a second to get the colors really bright. And then I brought out one extra element at the end.

Ok, so the trick is quite obvious now. Spray paint them white! I first covered the stems as best I could, then I used this spray paint and gave them a good spray.
