Have you seen those monogrammed pumpkins on Pinterest? I fell in love with them and decided to make my own this year. Some of the tutorials I read seemed a bit complicated so I decided to use the same steps that I used when I made Drew’s growth chart ruler, basically you just print out the size letter you want, trace it with a pen to give you the indent on the pumpkin and then trace the indent lines with a Sharpie. Easy peasy.
This is what you come up with… on a lopsided pumpkin. 🙂
You know where I always get my pumpkins for the best price? The grocery store (that’s Market Basket, for you Mass residents). This big pumpkin was $4.28.
The mum was the same deal, $3.99 at Market Basket. I took it out of the tacky terra cotta colored plastic pot and put it into a galvanized bucket we had lying around.
This zoomed out photo is to give you a good idea of what my next project is…
Making the boxwood planters and the window boxes more inviting and fall-ish. I’m just waiting on finding the perfect pumpkins…
Off to make corn chowder to for dinner while AJ is out running around with Drew… I just love the moments when the house is quiet and I can zone out. Especially after days with biting, hitting, whining and trying to eat the drain out of the sink. 🙂 And during those moments do you know what I’m dreaming of? Sitting on the couch with AJ after Drew goes to bed and watching the Friends rerun channel that I discovered the other night. Yep, pathetic. 🙂
