smashing pumpkins

I hope you had a happy Halloween! I had prepped this post last weekend but didn't schedule it. Even though I am a day late now I still wanted to share it with you anyways. Couldn't resist giving the post this title because I was going to see the Smashing Pumpkins in concert last night at the newly opened Barclay's Center in Brooklyn but given the circumstances it has been postponed...

This year I tried myself on decorating with pumpkins for the first time and since pumpkin carving seemed to be too difficult for a first timer like myself I spray painted one of my pumpkins. I saw a neon pink pumpkin online that I liked but I didn't feel that it would work great on our stoop so I spray painted mine yellow. Unfortunately it looks like a pumpkin you could possibly buy at the store but I still like my tiny pumpkins. Colorwise they looked great with the orange door. When I bought them I thought they looked like a pretty good size but compared to our plant they seem minuscule. Note for next year buy a huge pumpkin and get some carving gear...

 
 

Here is a little round up of painted pumpkins ideas. Especially like black chalkboard paint one because you can also draw a scary face, your house number or a pattern on it with chalk, the ideas a limitless...

  3. I'm glad people are getting more creative with their pumpkins because I was never much of a carver. I like the neon yellow one! And your stoop looks great. I might try my hand at spray painting them next year. Sorry the concert has been postponed! Any word on when they'll reschedule?

    1. Thanks Erin! One of my friends mentioned to me that spray painted pumpkins might explode when they start to rot from the inside. Not sure if it's true though. I can try it out with mine ;)

      Honestly I am glad that the concert got postponed, it wouldn't have felt right to go for me anyways. Not sure when they'll reschedule.

  4. Oh no- sorry to hear about your concert. I had been hearing the ads for it for a long time. The yellow looks great, and I can't wait to see what you do next year.

    1. I am glad they postponed the concert because I wouldn't have felt right to go anyways. Also there was not really a feasible way of transportation to Brooklyn...
