I Actually Tried One!

I’m not sure if you are like me, but I’ve got so many of Pinterest’s DIY pins that I swear I’ll get to one day…..WELL, I gave it my first shot! 

I thought this polka-dotted pumpkin looked adorable…and my OSU pumpkin needed a friend!





1. Buy an artificial pumpkin (mine via Hobby Lobby)
2. Put stickers everywhere (buy the size you like!)
3. Spray paint pumpkin black
4. Pull of stickers and voila!  Well, that’s what Pinterest said…but the spray paint crept under the sticks…ugh, I was so annoyed.  So I trecked myself to Michaels and picked up some acrylic paint and gave it my best shot.  It turned out pretty good actually!


Of course I wanted to get a shot of the two pumpkins right?!?  Well OF COURSE Brutie Man wanted in on this photo shoot (like always)…



I thought he would move….but then he laid down so I knew he was there for the long haul



So, I gave in and photographed his cuteness



When he wasn’t looking later, I snuck in this picture =)



We’ve been so busy with getting ready for our big partay/house-reveal this weekend that I haven’t had much time to blog….I’ll try to post sometime this week on what we’ve been up to!

Hope you had a great weekend!
