Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.

 
I’m linking up with Katie today for her and Steph’s Saw it. Pinned it.  Did it.  Now I know we have all seen this pretty little beauty on Pinterest, right?
 
 
 
 

Well I decided to try and recreate it.  It honestly was not hard at all.  What do you think?

Here are the steps:

1) Gather your supplies:
  • 3 pumpkins of different sizes
  • The letters “B O O”
  • Krylon glitter blast spray paint in Starry Night and Orange Burst ( I needed two cans of each; however, the first 2 I ordered online and they did not work very well.  So you may only need 2 cans total)
  • Urn or some type of holder for this topiary
  • Hot glue / gorilla glue / or some type of adhesive

2) Spray paint the letters and pumpkins.  Use a sharp object to remove the stems on the bottom two pumpkins.  Or like me, remove them all because I’m an idiot, Oops.  I guess I just got on a roll and forgot to stop : )

3) Adhere the letters to the pumpkins.  Also, adhere the pumpkins together and enjoy!

I put this right by our door to go along with our other pumpkins out front.  A couple hours later, Brutus and I went outside to get the mail and look what happened…

Ugh!!!!  I took all the pieces back inside and used gorilla glue instead of hot glue.  This bad boy is definitely a lot more sturdier now!
 
 

This is just an update of the apothecary jars I made last year, but here is how I repurposed them for Halloween

WOW! That really turned out great! Well, other than it falling down and all. :) Who knew it was that easy! You may have just inspired me to a Michael's run this afternoon to pick up some glitter spray paint!
