I decorated my pumpkins last year with chalkboard paint and I loved them so much, I decided to do it again this year. This is day one of the project. I painted a rectangle area with the black/grey chalkboard paint. It’s okay if the edges arent’ perfect because I will be adding trim around the paint. The pumpkin will sit to dry for a couple of hours and then I will show you what is next. The paint can be bought at Home Depot for about $10. I have had this can for months and still using it. A very good investment! I will be back with step #2 after the paint dries. On to some Room Mom projects for my delicious 2nd Grader~! xoxo
