pretty painted pumpkins

I LOVE Autumn. 
If you follow me on Instagram you've seen all the pictures of pumpkins, trees, fall decor, coffee, candy, and leaves I've been posting. The beauty of fall in Montana is just breathtaking.
Pumpkins are one of my favorite things about fall. I currently have so many pumpkins on my kitchen table 
there's barely enough room for me to eat there, ha! 
Kelli & I decided to paint pumpkins this year for her adorable frozen yogurt + coffee shop, The Red Caboose
 If you have a pumpkin without a stem, just put a mini pumpkin on top.
The "hello" pumpkin is actually chalkboard paint & then Kelli wrote on it with a chalk marker. 
 The glitter paint is from Joann's by Martha Stewart and I love it. 
Here's a shot of all the pumpkins on the mantle in the Red Caboose....
