Painted Cross-Stitch Pumpkins


For the past few years that I’ve carved my Halloween pumpkins, I’ve never been quite happy with the result, so this year I painted them instead. I made simple cross-stitch patterns using a little bit of craft paint and a skewer to create the x’s. They were so much fun to make and way less messier than carving. (Though, I’ll admit that I’m still smitten with these intricately carved pumpkins).

Did you decorate or carve pumpkins this year? If so, what did you make?
