The pumpkins are washed in a “bleach bath” and sit for approximately 10 minutes, rinsed and left to dry. Once dried, they are sprayed with either black, pink or white spray paint. They are again, left to dry.

 

 

Once dried after this process, the decorating begins!!

Each pumpkin receives a “tag” as to what The Pink Pumpkin Project is about.

 

Most pumpkins last a minimum of 4 weeks, however, we currently have a few that have lasted 5 months!!

THEY ARE SURVIVORS!!
