Stenciled Pumpkins

I think I forgot to mention that my grandson and I stenciled these pumpkins using paper doilies as a template. Really great idea I got from Better Homes and Gardens magazine.Since they're painted and not carved they'll last a long time.

What a neat blog! And it loaded so fast on my dialup connection.

I love to paint pumpkins - they just last so much longer. I love the stenciled look.

I always give mine a coat of clear spray paint. They look nice shiney - and it protects the paint if you have them outside.

I have never made the cinammon ornaments with gelatin and cornstarch. Looks interesting.

I just use cinnamon, applesauce, & elmers glue. I made them when my kids were litte - so in case they did decide to munch on one, it wouldn't be so bad (just would taste very cinnamony!)
