This past weekend I went to a writers' conference. I was quite taken with the imaginative table decorations. Each table had a white pumpkin with a handwritten quote from a famous writer. Next to the pumpkin was a small card with a short bio of the writer. There are lots of possibilities with this idea for Halloween decorating. I was motivated me to do some research. Buying an artificial pumpkin at a craft store turned out to be too expensive. So it is more economical to spray paint the pumpkin white like photo above and then with a black felt tip pen write the message.
I found these ideas on the link below to help get your creative juices flowing :)
One more pumpkin idea for your consideration from Country Living magazine using your house number with stencils or state.
I would be remiss if I didn't mention that the LRWN writers' conference in Fergus Falls MN was impressive with the line up of presenters and available resources for the participants.
