From simple painting to delightful decoupage, find your favorite and then get going.

Plaid to the Bone

Super easy, these taped pumpkins from Fort and Field can be real stunners on the front porch. Just take a variety of different colors of tape (found at Fort and Field's craft store) and help your kids make a pattern around and around the pumpkin. The result? A proud kid and his or her plaid pumpkin!
