Trick Your Pumpkin

Michaels asked me to be apart of their #trickyourpumpkin sweepstakes. The contest requires one of Michaels craft pumpkins and then of course your own creativity. They've been choosing winners each Friday, the prize being a $250 gift card to Michaels. The contest is super easy to enter, all you have to do is upload a photo to Instagram with the hashtags #trickyourpumpkin and #sweepstakes.

So here is what I started out with. At first I was honestly clueless, which is not how I usually feel about projects or crafts, I know what I like and am a pretty decisive person. But what could I do that hasn't been done? On top of that, how could I stay true to my own Halloween style? Especially when my favorite Pinterest Halloween picture is of a simple black matte pumpkin

Eventually I just decided to paint a floral pattern on it. I knew I wanted the base color to be matte and from there I just looked at different floral patterns that I liked and then added my own stuff. It was actually really fun! I think I might keep it in my daughters room for future Halloweens. She loves it and it goes perfectly in her room. Thanks for the opportunity Michaels!
