DIY: Monogrammed Pumpkin

Hey ya’ll! I’m so excited that I get to continue with this awesome series of DIYs, probably just because it means I get to browse Pinterest and the Internet looking for fun ideas that would love to do and I know you will too! This week I decided that I want to show you guys how to do a glitter letter pumpkin. I’ve seen this a few places, so it’s not completely my idea, but I thought I would still show you guys how to make one in your own style!

Time: about 30 minutes

What You Will Need:

A pumpkin – an obvious step; I’ve seen some people use fake ones, white ones and regular ones, so just choose one that you like the best!

Glitter – My favorite part!

Adhesive – when working with pumpkins like this, it’s best to get the spray kind, but you can use glue and a paintbrush too!

A stencil of your initial – you can print this out on a computer, or you can free hand this, make it how you want!



Let’s DIY!

Step 1: Make sure your pumpkin is clean! Wipe it down or wash it with soap and water. You want to make sure you have a clean canvas to work with!

Step 2: Go ahead and decide on your stencil, if you want to free hand it, that’s awesome! But, if you’re a little more hesitant, find a cool design, print it and cut it out! 

Step 3: Tape your stencil to your pumpkin, and start using your adhesive to put glitter everywhere.

Step 4: Glitter! Pour your glitter on to the canvas and wait for everything to dry! Don’t forget to peel off the stencil when you’re finished! You can also use a paintbrush to clean up the edges!

I hope you guys enjoyed this quick and simple DIY, there are so many ways that I was inspired to do this DIY, I can’t just name one, but you should totally check them out on Pinterest and YouTube for more awesome tutorials!
