Last year I bought a couple of those fake pumpkins at the craft store...
I pulled them out and set one on my mantel the other day.
But I decided to spruce them up a little bit.
First, I drew out a sketch of what I wanted to put on my pumpkin...
just to get an idea:
Then I copied it as best as I could onto my pumpkin
With a permanent marker, I carefully traced the letter,
I used a small dish to make the circle around the letter:
And then also made it bolder with a permanent marker:
Then I added little "twigs" and "vines" to embellish the circle:
I like it,
Fortunately, I have two!
I think I may use this one for the walkway and make another one with a smaller monogram for my mantel.
I'm linking to these parties.
