I decorated this mantel quite quickly just to take a picture to show the “Fall” side of the other side of the Halloween pumpkins. I can’t wait to decorate with the fall pumpkins and show you how I will really be featuring them.

You can see the pumpkins partially done with sharpie drawings.

I decided to paint one of the pumpkins a taupe/beige. It worked perfect with the color scheme I was going for. Can you see that the taupe pumpkin is a bit smoother? I used a bit of sand paper helped create a smoother surface to draw the witch on. But truthfully, you don’t need to do that. It was a waste of time.

Use pencil to create your drawing.

Fill in with sharpie! Yep, that easy!

    Love that you used both sides of the pumpkins! Also loved the trees on the Halloween mantle, did you make those, or purchase them. If you did purchase them, can you please share? Thank you.

      Barbara,
      I purchased the trees many years ago. I can’t remember where but it was so long ago that they wouldn’t be selling them.
      Thanks for your kind comments.
