Welcome Pumpkin

I have been meaning to post this for a couple of days now. You now how it goes...I can't seem to get any time anymore! But here it is. The first pumpkin I decorated this year:

The pumpkin is fake, although it looks kinda real, huh? I ordered it from JoAnn's on sale. I decided to just do a simple "Welcome" for the porch. I got the template for the lettering from here.

It was really long as you have a little patience! Here's what I started with:

Then I just printed out the template found at the above link, and cut out the letters. I then taped it onto the pumpkin where I wanted the word to be.

Then I traced the word just like it was a stencil.

And I painted inside the lines with some black acrylic paint. This is where the patience comes in.

And voila, about two episodes of Full House later and I had my own "Welcome" pumpkin!

Here it is sitting on the front porch. Isn't it purdy? (psst- see that little orangish-greenish pumpkin on top of the wooden crate - the one by the fake gord? Yea, that grew in our backyard! Cute little guy.)

P.S. I owe you updated Fall front porch photos. And I will have that ready for you soon. Promise.
P.P.S. Landscaping is complete! Finished project pictures tomorrow. Aren't you excited? I am. :)
