I adore the Snail Mail Game Show. I love getting submissions from all over where creative people respond to the same prompt in completely different ways! For Round 6, all the participants received a paper with the outline of a pumpkin and were instructed to decorate it however they wanted. The only rule is it had to reach me via snail mail! Want more info? Check out the info page!
Round 6 Submissions
Artist: Amanda Just
Mixed media for the win! Washi tape, fringed tissue paper, and a pom pom nose! This guy is awesome.
Adoring the layered collage of leaves that made its way all the way from Germany!
Artist: Caitlin H.
Caitlin calls this one “Flower Power” and I think that’s a perfect name for her colorful masterpiece.
Artist: Olivia Arrow
Olivia was inspired by sugar skulls and I think we should probably start decorating all pumpkins this way.
Artist: Lisa S.
Glitter on glitter on glitter! Can you imagine if pumpkins were naturally glittery? That would be incredible.
Such detailed work on the spider typography and design! Gorgeous.
Artist: Tranifer Lovely
Feminist Jill-O-Lantern. Tranifer continues to kill it!
And the winner is…. Olivia, with the sugar skull pumpkin! She will receive a special surprise in the mail from me!

2) What is your ideal pumpkin decoration?
I have to say Ana’s pumpkin was my favorite with the watercolor and the “Boo”. I totally love this one so much.. Though everyone did a fantastic job!
I know, right? It’s always SO hard to choose a winner! Thanks for taking a look, Rebecca!
I think this is so fabulous. I cannot wait for the next round. I sent payment in to participate. You are so creative!!
Got it! I’m so happy you’re participating!!
I am so honored! I’d like to thank the postal service for still delivering snail mail and my husband for supporting my mail obsession…but this wouldn’t have been possible without Uncustomary Art and her SMGS!
Really though, thank you so much! I love everyone’s pumpkins. This is always so much fun to do and to see all the results in the end.
Congrats! You’re amazing.
