Blogger Bonanza {Monogrammed Pumpkin}

Hi!  I'm Ginger from over at Ginger Snap Crafts
I'm so excited to be over participating in the Guest Blogger Bonanza!!!
Thanks for having me over, Kitty! So fun!!
Since it's so close to Halloween I thought I'd share this easy way to fancy up your pumpkins!
If you are like me & get your pumpkins WAY early this is a good way to make them look cute without carving them yet!  Since pumpkins don't stay so cute if you carve them too early
...at least not where we live.  It's still a little too warm I think! 
{The kid's also love carving the pumpkins on Halloween 
& then putting all the jack-o-lanterns out for the trick or treaters.}
Today I'm going to share my
Monogrammed Pumpkin Tutorial.
{So do you walk the aisles of Hobby Lobby looking for inspiration, too?} 
This is were I got the idea to make my own monogrammed pumpkin!
 
It was super easy!
All you need is a nice round pumpkin & some vinyl lettering.
If you don't have a vinyl cutter, you could also use stickers or stencils & contact paper. 
{I think the stem makes the pumpkin!  Look at that stem! Perfect!}
I'll admit it wasn't easy getting vinyl to stick to a curved slightly bumpy pumpkin!
I ended up taking the B vinyl completely off the transfer paper and just slowly
working with it until it went on smoothly.  I did the same thing with the frame. 
Take your time.  Vinyl is pretty forgiving IF you take it nice & slow.
There you go!  All done! :)
The great thing is in a week or two when it's time to carve this pumpkin,
the vinyl can easily be removed & we'll have a jack-o-lantern in it's place.
I'd love to have you stop by Ginger Snap Craft sometime!
I've got a fun little link party on Wednesdays!  Would LOVE to have YOU!



 
Thanks for having me over, Kitty!
