Pottery Barn Inspired Pumpkins

After seeing Lindsay's post over at Living With Lindsay, I had to try these cuties out myself!  You can buy the kits to make these pumpkins on sale for $10 each, or you can make all four of them yourself for about $3 worth of material. You could also make up your own designs and see how they work out, the materials are so cheap, it's hard to go wrong!

Pottery Barn Kids

This was a great project to do with the kids.  Mine are a little too young to do the intricate cuts, but they were more than happy to help stick on the pieces.  It's getting close to carving time this year, but if we remember to do this next year, it will help keep my boys happy between the time we pick out pumpkins and when it's time to carve them.

Lindsay has provided her own template on her site with directions.  Head on over to Living with Lindsay to see the step by step and print your own patterns!

These are our personal pumpkins, aren't they sweet?!  We still need to do the spider and skull.
And just when I thought they couldn't be cuter...
