Having trouble transitioning to fall? Set aside an afternoon to sip hard cider and paint cheerful floral pumpkins with your friends. I opted for faux pumpkin halves that can easily be hung on a door or wall in place of a wreath, but you can recreate this look just as easily on real pumpkins you pick from the patch.

Paint rough shapes

Start by roughing out petals and leaves with a medium sized paint brush.  
Include a variety of flower shapes and try not to feel restricted by typical color choices and combinations!

Using oil pastels, outline leaf lines and petals.  Be sure to vary the types of lines and textures you use on each flower.
