This weekend was suitably foggy and eerie for a Halloween weekend, so I got cozy inside. I’ve already sold some of my beaded Christmas spiders so I really need to get cracking and make some more, but first I had to make one last Halloween craft: turquoise painted pumpkins, inspired by my favorite vintage Pyrex pattern, Blowing Leaves.
After painting a series of pumpkins turquoise for my easy turquoise rhinestone pumpkins, I started dreaming about a Pyrex-inspired painted pumpkin. I eyed up my turquoise Pyrex collection and plucked the Blowing Leaves casserole from the top shelf.
Using the Craft Smart Paint Pen (found at Michael’s – this one is similar), I just freehand drew the design of mod leaves. It is TRICKY to draw on a pumpkin because it’s round and lumpy, and my design is admittedly a little wonky, but it turned out so adorably cute I wanted to share.
Hope everyone has a safe and happy Halloween! If you’re craving a sweet treat but can’t stomach any more candy, I highly recommend baking up a batch of these easy chocolate raspberry hand pies tonight.
