If you have followed my blog for a while then you now that my dental office coworkers and myself decorate a pumpkin to bring to the office for the month of October. Last year we raffled them and the proceeds went to Susan B Komen Race for the Cure. This year they will go to Snack Pak 4 Kids. It’s an organization that supplies food to hungry kids so they won’t go to bed hungry at night.
My pumpkin this year is an owl in a tree. I painted an orange pumpkin to look like a tree, but my son thinks it looks more like a walnut.
It does kind of look like a walnut. I had to take this photos at night. I ran out of daylight. Story of my life.
I used a tool from Lowes to create the faux bois.
I am sure it works better and is easier to do on a flat surfaces compared to a round indented object.
I will be posting pics of my
walnut pumpkin and the ones my coworkers done soon.
