Easy Pumpkin Project: Vinyl Lettering


I saw this idea in a local shop, and gave it a whirl at home. You gotta love a pumpkin all dressed up for Halloween with no carving needed! :-) They also had small pumpkins spray-painted black with white lettering on the pumpkin. That looked very cool.  Imagine what a pumpkin painted silver with black and white and glittery ribbons would look like!  Ah, the possibilities....

Here's what you need for this quick and easy pumpkin project.

1.)   A pumpkin or two

2.)   Vinyl lettering -- Halloween phrases in a spooky font.P1030938

3.)   3-5  fabric ribbons, 3/4 to 1 yard each, in various crazy Halloween colors and patterns, all tied onto the stem of the pumpkin in a shoestring bow.

4.)  A friend to do the project with. :-)

I saw a cute one like this only the lady used a gourd and put welcome on it to set in her kitchen. Really cute.
