Pumpkin Painting 🎃

Aldridge Gardens 3530 Lorna Road, Hoover, AL

BYO mini pumpkin! We’ll meet at the entrance of Aldridge Gardens at 1 PM to enjoy the fall air and paint some pumpkins. I have brushes, paints, and spray on clear coat to seal your artwork. You’re welcome to bring your own paints and brushes if you’d like. The paint helps preserve your pumpkin, so it should last all month long as a festive decoration in your home. I’ll bring spooky snacks for everyone, but you can bring your own snack if you’d like.
