Gourd Makeover!

Boo!

These little ghosty gourds are so simple and cute.  
This is such an easy way to embellish your Halloween table!  Even the little ones can help.
1.  Start with some gourds.


2.  Paint each one white.  I just used whatever white paint I had on hand.
3.  Use a dab of black paint to make the eyes and mouth.
That's it.


So easy.  The hardest part for me was waiting for the paint to dry.  I am so impatient when it comes to crafting.


I think they make a nice little addition to my Halloween table.  
They would even look cute hanging from a tree!  Maybe I'll move them outside....
