This year's big 'ol pumpkin

Here are some pics from the pumpkin that Mom and I decorated (with help from my little sister Johanna) for this year's Pumpkinfest.

We decoupaged fabric onto our pumpkin with acrylic gloss.

Here are the directions from last year on how to make a fabric covered pumpkin, giant or otherwise.

The giant pumpkins for Pumpkinfest are grown all over the state, but our pumpkin was grown by a local boy and weighed in at 337 pounds!

I thought it had great color and a great shape, too.

Enjoy and I will be back soon with pictures of the other pumpkins from Pumpkinfest!

(Note: The pumpkin in these pictures is covered with acrylic gloss that is still wet, which is why it looks milky... the acrylic gloss dries clear, but you will have to take my word for it, as town got so crazy with Pumpkinfest visitors that I was too terrified to go back and snap pictures of the dry pumpkin!)
