Once upon a time (like yesterday) this wickedly crazy for Halloween lady decided plain old orange pumpkins weren’t for her.
I had sudden pangs of guilt for my three recently acquired, extremely traditional pumpkins because they sat on ordinary stairs, doing their best to decorate a very common staircase.
These pumpkins longed to be dazzled up and shine their brightest in the Halloween spotlight (I mean c’mon, they’re my gourds after all – like they’d be satisfied staying a plain old orange) and because I have a knack for all things sparkly, I set out to bedazzle the hell out of my mini manse drawbridge.
It started with a few cans of contemporary magic….
…and grass magically turned silver (on accident, as I did try to protect it…kinda) when a pumpkin makeover commenced.
A little metallic silver here and glossy black there and…
The poor peasant pumpkins went from mediocre to magnificent in moments.
But this Halloween monster still felt that something was missing on my little plump pretties.
Of course plain white accessories just wouldn’t do, so glitz was added with a witchy wave of a spray can.
So it is with pleasure that I proudly introduce the
gaudiest fairest pumpkins in all the land…
With the help of contemporary magic, these primped up pumpkins turned an ordinary staircase into a regal entrance.
And they’ll live happily ever after! (Well, they’ll live until I want to get my Christmas tree out on November 1st anyway)
