spin-art pumpkins

The kids and I are totally in love with this project.


Each pumpkin is better than the last.


You never know quite how it will turn out.



Spin, salad spinner!


But before you spin- put in the paper...
Squirt on the paint...


s-p-i-n...
crack open the lid and peek in!



It's miraculous.


Turn this--


Into this.


What is not to love?!


Even the leftover mess is a work of art.


And to think- tomorrow this spinner will be back to lettuce.

You love that spin art, don't you. Your blog always makes me smile.
Good luck on the winning the photos on my blog. Did you sign up for the other giveaway on my blog.
Not too colorful but you could change that, hah.

At first I panicked when I saw your salad spinner on the carpeted floor! Then as I scrolled down, I saw why I needn't worry. My salad spinner "bowl" has holes on the bottom so the water can get out but yours is solid. Phew! That would have been a mess at my house! :)
