This would be a great idea for an All Saint's party too...It really only took us about 2 1/2 hours to make about a dozen Saint pumpkins! (Not including set-up and clean-up) Our only supplies were sharpie pens and paint. Tip: Washable Tempera paint definitely works well but we liked the acrylic paints best...More vibrant colors. Everyone wore aprons since acrylic paint is not washable.
We always discover new gifts and talents when we do art projects! Princess created an adorable Holy Family:)
We are using it for our kitchen table centerpiece for November...Maybe even December!? The rest of the pumpkins also made the cutest liturgical decorations:)
Angel baby made St. Therese (mostly) on her own...
+Superboy made St. Michael the Archangel+
Here we have St. Francis of Assisi...
A few saintly pumpkins made it the fireplace mantle...How's that for a power trio?
Let's see, we also had St. Patrick...He is (teenager) Army Dude's patron saint...
He's just too cute!
And one of my favorite's...Our Lady of Guadalupe:) We ran out of pumpkins but I wanted to do Juan Diego to go with her!
I really think Princess did a nice job with St. Kateri Tekakwitha...One of her patron saints...Perfect decor for Thanksgiving too!
Here they are all together!
They really turned out much cuter than I ever expected...Certainly making up for my original disappointment;-)
