Painted Number Pumpkins

Looking for a simple, stylish way to display some pumpkins? Yes, I did say "stylish pumpkins".
How about painting some numbers on them? Don't laugh!

Decorating with numbers is all over the design world and I'm loving it too. You could display these pumpkins outside with your address on them or use whatever number combo you want-like the number of family members you have, year your home was built or wedding date.

I like that this idea goes beyond the traditional Halloween time carving and would still look festive for Thanksgiving, too.

Here's how I made them: I used white acrylic craft paint and a small, pointed artists brush to paint the numbers on 3 small pumpkins in a row. Ta da!! Took me no time at all.
