Fall brings cool air, warm treats and beautiful colors all around in nature. It gives you a break from the summer heat without frosting your toes just yet.
Pumpkins are a staple for fall and can be used for many different things. Near Halloween we use them for decoration as jack-o-laterns. That involves carving and scraping the insides out but recently people have been finding new ways to decorate them with less mess.
You can paint them and make them colorful to still keep a colorful fall. Directions for these designs can be found on Funky Time blog. Jack-o-lanterns don’t have to be scary. More ideas are featured on ivillage.com and HomeGoods
