DIY Pumpkin Craft

  • Wedding Wednesday

the FASTEST wedding wednesday I’ve ever posted in my LIFE. I am literally in the middle of blow drying my hair and finishing a presentation! I’m taking 4 of our girls to visit CNU and then I have the opportunity to speak and answer questions for CNU’s digital photography class!  I’m excited!!!… But running out of time! And if you’re a fall bride that is excited and running out of time… this pumpkin monogrom DIY project is a GREAT way to decorate an entry way, the top of the bar, centerpieces, etc! It’s easy, crafty, and CHEAP. It costs me $4 for the pumpkin and $1.25 for a set of silver thumbtacks! Simply draw your

monogram, initial, wedding date, etc. onto the pumpkin and then stick the thumbtacks over the outline! DONE! When I was younger I used to DREAM of the day when I could have a house of my own and DECORATE the front porch during the fall!!! I used to judge other houses with a tiny single pumpkin or one little fall flag… welp, now that I’m in the real world, I realize that not everyone has time to be Martha Stewart… including myself!! I need crafts that take 5 minutes MAX!! So please don’t look too closely at my DEAD mums and enjoy this little DIY fall inspiration!!!

xoxo, Katelyn

    Looks great Katelyn! And don’t feel too bad, this is the first year we’ve been able to decorate our front porch. Makes me appreciate it more though!!

    Seriously?! KK, you always make everything look so classy. I would never think of this… if I decided to do something other then carving, I’d probably just write on it with a sharpie. hahah you’re great!

    If I had a porch, it’s be decked out in thumbtacked pumpkins. But we live on the 4th floor of an apartment building, so no one really sees out balcony. I always buy pumpkins for their guts! I bake the seeds with butter and Lowry’s season salt- sooooo delicious! Btdubs, this post is pretty good for only having spent 5 minutes on it!
