There are a lot of creative people sharing cool things on the internet.
Wow, vague statement of the year, no?
Where I was trying to go with that useless sentence was that while cruising through Pinterest I saw some majorly cool pumpkin ideas that other bloggers had come up with, and got all inspired.
So I went out, bought some mini pumpkins, and settled in to be oh-so creative and let that inspiration just go crazy. Wellllll I think sometimes when you try too hard to be creative-you just get stuck in trying to decide what to do to top what you've seen.
So rather than get to wild and crazy, I stuck to some simple basics, monogram & dots.
All you'll need is:
Black puffy paint
Gold Acrylic paint
The first one is simple. Do you know the first letter of your first or last name? Did you learn cursive in 2nd grade? Well, then you can make this happen. I just drew out an L in pen and traced it out with black puffy paint. Stay with me here folks, I know you're blown away. In the end, you'll get this:
The second one might be even easier. I included a foam brush on you "need" list, but imma level with you, I finger painted this pumpkin. Like I said, why go complicated when you can go so simple? I highlighted a few dots with gold glitter and bam. Done. Kate Spade-esque, right?
Here they are together on our shelves. Please note that I have a Shel Silverstein book there. Yup.
Just for good measure, let me share some cool ideas I saw out there:
1. Ashley's gold dot pumpkins.
2. Erika's edgy chic pumpkins.
3. Aimee's washi tape pumpkins.
4. Shannon's gold thumbtack pumpkins.
How did you decorate your pumpkins this year?
Please tell me someone else finger painted. Please.
