DIY PINK FLAMINGO PUMPKIN

Things have been so fun around here these days. I love when this time of year strikes. Halloween is one of my favorite times to celebrate! But even though summer is over, I could never turn my back on the amazing flamingo trend! ;) It’s safe to say I’ve painted a silly thing or two pink before (remember this pineapple?!). This DIY Pink Flamingo Pumpkin is another simple and chic way to get out of dealing with the mess that comes along with carving pumpkins. Plus, this pumpkin looks SO much more stylish than any jack-o-latern I’ve ever seen. Sometimes it’s fun to break traditions and start new ones. Let’s keep painting the town pink! ;)
