Instead of using a real pumpkin, I am going to buy a fake one from a craft store, along with black card stock to make letters. Using the letters, I am going to spell out our family name and attach it using straight pins. As you can see, the pumpkin featured on Pinterest added a black spider for Halloween. I love that idea! I will probably add a spider or bat for Halloween, and change it out with a couple of Fall-colored leaves.
This pumpkin will be a great festive way to welcome guests to our house, and, using my little accent change-up, it can stay out for the entire Fall season! And the best part is that when I am done, I can pack up the pumpkin and put it into the Fall decorations that I have already organized – and it will be there waiting for me next Fall!
