Today my "middle one" turns 21.
She is the "me" I wanted to be.
She is my world.
So I made her goofy gift to hang on her front door.
And just in case you want to make one too...
Here ya go~
I started with a sheet of thin lauane.
It's a very smooth wood and will give you a great surface to work on.
You can find it in the pre cut center at Home Depot.
I drew out a pumpkin and traced it on to the wood.
Using my jig saw, I cut the pumpkin out and sanded the edges.
Now for the tricky part..
I love Chevron but painting it is a bear.
I drew out a pattern on my the same pumpkin I had drawn earlier.
I traced it onto my wooden cutout and painted it on top of my orange coat.
I used a foam brush.
This will help you keep your lines straight.
I painted the stem a fun green and added a jute hanger.
The burlap bow just tops it off don't ya think?
Because this is not an outdoor wood, I would recommend hanging it indoors or under cover outside.
Kaylee has a front porch so hers should be fine.
I may to make one for myself now.
"Happy Fall Y'all"

Now I must go and digest the fact that my first girl is 21.
