One of my goals for October was to actually do one of the crafts I am always pinning on Pinterest. Sometimes I just need to take a break and do something fun and relaxing…all part of good mental health, which is very important in my opinion! I finally bit the bullet and picked one that seemed simple enough (with a few modifications on my part) and I am pleasantly surprised with how it turned out!

I first saw this pumpkin on Pinterest and followed the link to a fun blog where I found the directions. Not gonna lie, the directions seemed a little scary for this non-crafty gal, but I was determined.

I was on the lookout for a craft pumpkin, when I saw one, already cream colored, at Target! Take a step out of the process without having to paint an orange one? Yes please! I also wasn’t so sure about the whole transfer paper and paint thing, so I decided…why not just use a sharpie?

So here is what I did:

-I found a font I liked, and printed out the “M” as big as would fit on a piece of paper, and then printed it out.

-Then, I cut out the M as closely as I could and taped it to the pumpkin

-I then vvveeerrryyyy carefully traced around the M with a pencil.

-Finally, I used a chisel tip thick sharpie to outline and then fill in the M. I may spray paint a coat of some sort of sealant on it, but other than that, I’m done, and oh so proud!
