I had fun with these pumpkins. Quite easy really. It could be done with real pumpkins or craft ones. I used a state decal sticker to give me the state designs, acrylic craft paint, makeup sponges for painting, and star stickers to mark the cities. Quite "Martha like" I would say! The bottom one was for my mother in law in Minnesota. She displayed them on her fireplace. The 584 is her address. The 1st was for our home here in Blanco, TX...the star represents the hill country where we live.
