DATE: Sat Oct 9
LOCATION: The Seaside Succulent 4940 Old Dixie Hwy, Grant, FL 32949
Join us Saturday, October 9 for a super fun and creative afternoon! We'll start by learning a cool technique called "pour painting" with Patricia Worrow and create your own beautiful painted pumpkin (see one of our sample faux pumpkins in the photos). You'll be able to customize your colors and make it uniquely you!
Bring your own pumpkin! You can paint on a real pumpkin or gourd OR on a faux pumpkin - YOU CHOOSE your favorite pumpkin and bring it with you!
We will use a framed canvas as our “drop cloth” & once your pumpkin is finished, you’ll be able to complete your pour painting on the canvas so you’ll leave with TWO works of art!
Then we'll talk all things succulents with Leslie, including how to keep these low maintenance babies alive and thriving! We'll create a beautiful succulent arrangement atop our gorgeous new painted pumpkins!
TIPS FOR CHOOSING A PUMPKIN:
I suggest choosing a medium to large (nice size for a dining table or front porch, about 8-10” across) heirloom or "Cinderella" pumpkin because they are technically gourds and will last many months (if you care to keep it around that long LOL). The traditional orange pumpkins will rot much more quickly. I will have a variety of succulent types and sizes available to choose from but many will be too large to decorate the mini pumpkins so it's best to stick to a larger pumpkin with a nice flat top to decorate upon!
If you’d prefer a faux pumpkin, they can be found at Michael's, Hobby Lobby, etc. Same size and shape suggestion above!
