painted party pumpkins from make wells

Hi! It's Megan from Makewells here today with a colorful post showing my own version of "fall - South Florida style!"  If you are like me, then you totally drool over Alisa's gorgeous pumpkins every year. I look forward to seeing what she will create every year! So, I decided to make my own collection this year, incorporating bold colors and hand lettering!

We don't get much of a change color wise here, so I stuck with my favorite bright, beachy palette. 

Instead of a spooky, Halloween theme, I wanted to do some encouraging, positive lettering on a few pumpkins. So after painting some bold brush strokes on each pumpkin, I added some black lettering on a few.

Each pumpkin had a unique color scheme...but they all compliment each other and our wooden, "Florida" patio furniture. 

To make the lettering really stand out against the bright and busy backgrounds, I added a white drop shadow for an extra pop.

These pumpkins will sit outside and be subject to the sun and rain, so after painting I used a clear acrylic sealer to help them last the whole season. 

Now we have a some fall decor to brighten up our front porch and welcome guests to our home! Thank you Alisa for the inspiration with your pumpkins! The possibilities are truly endless!

I hope you all are enjoying your fall, wherever you happen to be. Keep using #redefinitecreativelettering when you post to instagram, I love seeing what you are creating!

These are so gorgeous! I'd want to paint them on those fake craft pumpkins because I think I'd totally cry having to get rid of them at the end of the season! You did a fabulous job! Thanks for your inspiration!

Once your jack-o-lamp face is finished, take your pumpkin outside and place it on the drop material. On the off chance that you have to do the analysis inside, ensure that you are in a very much ventilated region and place the pumpkin in the cardboard box.
