Free Time Pumpkins

The dreaded stomach bug hit our home again. Poor Blinky was down for the count for several days. While she was resting, I tried to use the "extra time" at home to clean up and work on a few crafts.

I've always wanted to transform a Dollar Tree pumpkin into something nicer. Having seen these at a pumpkin patch a few days ago for more than I was willing to spend, I broke out the acrylic paints and got to work.
