Or the post that shall henceforth be known as "Punkin' Donuts".
A few weeks ago, I snagged three small white pumpkins from Trader Joes for .69 cents each. I brought them home, and debated on what to do with them. Succulent planters? Paint them all an ombre of the same shade? No...donuts. Yeah, that's it. Donuts.
(I was also in week two of my Whole 30, and donuts sounded like the best thing in the world to me. It was definitely a stomach-over-mind decision)
You don't really need a detailed tutorial for this one, but I have these handy little steps all created for you just in case! So, step one: choose your pumpkins. This seems to look best on the short, fat ones. You know, the ones shaped like donuts. (also, in week two of Whole 30, Nick's head was beginning to look like a donut, so there's that).
Step two: choose an icing color to paint. I picked a light pink (strawberry) and a brown (chocolate).
Step three: dot on your sprinkles. I used five different colors and five different brushes to dot these on. Make sure to make them oblong and not round so they look more like sprinkles!
And there you go! But whatever you do, don't take a bite outta these guys. It probably won't be delicious.
Make sure to pin this for your next pumpkin painting party! It's so simple, and would a great project for kids, too!
Have you done any pumpkin decorating yet this year? Have you made pumpkin seeds (aka, the best things in the world)?
