Tonight, from the comfort of my bed, I'm sharing a painted pumpkin idea inspired by the minions on Despicable Me. Kenny, one of our readers, did an excellent job replicating the little yellow lovies. If you have any questions or would like a tutorial - shoot me an email and I bet Kenny would love to share how he made this work. Thanks for sharing your idea!
UPDATE: I've had a couple of people ask about this amazing pumpkin. Spray paint was used for the yellow, weed eater string for the hair, jar lids for the eyes, acrylic for the details, and buttons for the overalls. Good luck!
