This DIY monogrammed pumpkin that you can hang from your door is a lovely idea. October is breast cancer awareness month so you can think pink with your design. Or go dark for Halloween. If you would rather have Christmas as the theme use a stocking instead. Thanks to One Krieger Chick for the classic idea.
Hello there friends! Are you enjoying all things Fall yet? Me too! I’m eating candy pumpkins (like candy corn) as I type this…I get so excited when I spot a bag in the store. We all have favorite seasonal treats, right? My front porch is all decked out with pumpkins and mums and this festive Monogrammed Pumpkin Door Decor that I previously shared at Domestically Speaking as part of a fun Burlap Series. If you missed any of the projects, you can see them all here.
Fall is my favorite season to decorate for and I like to choose items I can leave on display through Thanksgiving. When I first saw these half pumpkins, I knew I had to create something with them.
Let’s get started…You may be surprised at how many of these items you already have on hand!
- Large round or oval frame
- Half Pumpkin (from Michael’s Craft Store)
- chip board or heavy cardboard (from Hobby Lobby)
- exacto knife
- Burlap (from JoAnn Fabric and Craft)
- spray adhesive (Elmer’s)
- Ribbon (from Michael’s Craft Store)
- Paint (from Michael’s Craft Store)
- Hot glue gun
I went shopping in my garage and happened to have this gorgeous antique brass frame, so I popped the photo and glass out and cleaned it up. I bet you could find something similar at a Thrift Store or Garage Sale…An over-sized embroidery hoop would look cool too! It happened to have a metal backing which I used to make a cardboard insert. I traced the metal backing onto the chip board, then cut it out using an exacto knife. If there is not a backing or insert in your frame, just trace the inside of the frame. You want it to fit inside snugly.
