Today is the day – my turn to share as part of the pumpkin parade!
As a reminder, you can check out new pumpkin projects each day this week. And on Friday, make sure to come back and link up your favorite pumpkin posts!
For my project, I decided to put together a fun pumpkin display for my fall porch. I love stacking heirloom pumpkins like a topiary to add height and interest. I thought it would be cool to add a little phrase that is sweet to me – “Home Sweet Home.” I wanted to steer away from anything too “Halloweeny” so I could keep it up for the duration of fall.
To do this, I simply hand-drew my letters on each pumpkin with pencil. Since I have a serious stash of paint, I just made my own mid-grey color from Behr Jet Black and Behr Ultra Pure White. Then, I used a small brush to fill in the words.
20 minutes was all it took to get my “Home Sweet Home” pumpkins.
To stack them, I use a hammer to break off their stems. Then, I nestle them on top of one another for the topiary look. Voila. A sweet reminder of all I have to be thankful for this fall. Home Sweet Home, indeed.
What do you think of my painted pumpkins?
