DIY: Monogrammed Pumpkin

When it comes to monograms I follow the same rule as Reese Witherspoon “….if it’s not moving-monogram it!”. On a recent trip to Michaels I spotted their faux pumpkins for half off. While Pinterest was full of faux pumpkin ideas featuring glitter, polka dots and lots of paint, my approach was different. I decided to carve my monogram into the pumpkin, creating a perfect statement piece for the balcony or end table. 

{create your monogram}
{trace the monogram onto the pumpkin}
 {cut the letters out with a paring knife}
{add a flicking LED candle}

  7. Fabulous! I love that you can use this one over and over! I painted a real pumpkin with my last inital. I can't do a married monogram because it spells a bad word! Bummer.
