a day at the patch...
We had a fun day at the Sauvie's Island Pumpkin Patch, choosing a mix of different shapes, sizes, and colors for our porch decorations.
There is nothing quite like a visit to your local pumpkin patch, sipping on some fresh cider, and getting lost in a corn maze to set in those fall vibes!

Dimensional Paint Patterns
Dimensional Paint or Puff Paint gives a great dimensional effect and freehand movement to patterned designs.
Use Paint Pens to easily hand draw patterns and
designs onto any color pumpkin!
These pumpkins take embellishment to the next level and we are here for it! Layering art paper, sequins, lace, ephemera, ribbon, rhinestones, and more turn pumpkins into a maximalist masterpiece.
