Monogram Pumpkin DIY

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.

Craft paint..

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?

So sweet!

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.

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

Oh boy!
