A Letter and a Pumpkin




I get ideas from browsing Pinterest all the time. Often times they are fanciful ideas that look pretty, but probably will never come to fruition. But, it's the simple ideas that make me say " why did I never think of doing that" which I love the most.



A pin with the idea of hanging letters from pumpkins for a Cinderella birthday party made me think of doing the same for fall. I simply bought a white initial from Michaels, spray painted it quickly with some spray paint I had, to give it a metallic finish. As I was spraying it, I noticed the paint, meant for metal, was giving the wood a speckled look, but as often happens when I try something new, I liked the result.

It gives a faux pumpkin a whimsical touch; just a bit of an unexpected addition that I like. You could even take this one step further and line up four pumpkins with the letters f a l l - how adorable would that be?

Oh Pinterest, how you inspire us!
