DIY Friday: Fall Pumpkin

This post may contain affiliate links. Disclosure Policy

I’ve been wanting a pumpkin to put by my front door for the fall, but I really hadn’t found a pre-made one that I really liked. I’m kind of picky when it comes to thinks like that, so I figured I’d be better off making one myself. I want to make one for each of the three of us with our first initials on them, but I think I might do that for next year so I can buy the pumpkins when they go on clearance.

This is a pretty easy project. I simply bought the pumpkin, a stencil, some black paint and a foam brush. I taped the stencil to the pumpkin and then painted it. I wasn’t too thrilled with it at first because the painting wasn’t perfectly straight, but then I realized that the jagged edges make it look more “scary” and make it perfect for Halloween. Love!

If you didn’t want to paint, you can always find a sticker to put on. I may go that route for the other pumpkins, but I haven’t decided yet. I found some initial stickers that are large enough on eBay.
