Happy Monday, friends!
Today’s post is just a little tip for those of you as obsessed with gourd-geous pumpkins as I am!
As you all know, we like to buy our pumpkins as soon as they’re out…even though it’s still warm here in Texas. What we’ve learned over the years though is that one way to make sure your pumpkins and gourds stay looking fabulous for several months (and especially in the heat!) is to spray them with…
…this right here. You can buy this at places like Home Depot in different types of finishes. This year, we sprayed all of the pumpkins with high gloss, but next year, I think we might try doing a mix of high gloss and matte. Either way, our experience tells us that this helps preserve our pumpkins outdoors much, much longer!
Here’s what you do…
…bring home your pumpkins and wash them off.
Then let them dry completely out in the sun (it doesn’t take long).
Grab your supplies and start…
After you spray your pumpkins, let them dry a few minutes before moving them to your outside location.
And that, my friends, is how we keep our pumpkins gourd-geous all season long 🙂 .
Have the best Monday! xx
