Monogram Pumpkin

We ended up with one extra pumpkin after Halloween that we didn't carve.  So, I thought I would try to monogram it with the initial from our last name.

Acrylic Paint
Clear spray

I started by drawing a 'M' on my pumpkin using a Sharpie pen.

Then I just painted it black.

Next, I added some white dots around the edge to make it a little more decorative.

After that, I added a thin black line around the whole 'M'.

After spraying with some clear coat, it was all done!

I decided to keep in inside, although I think it would be ok outside as well since it is clear coated over the paint.

I switched to my Thanksgiving decorations and I realized I have accumulated quite a few pilgrims.  I pick these up whenever I see them at thrift stores or yard sales.

This little one in the front was my grandma's ('Rankee').  It's a candle and she used to put it out on her dining room table every year.

The two behind her I got at the Dollar Tree probably 10 years ago, they are also candles.

These two are salt and pepper shakers, I got them a Thrift store for $1 for the pair!

These last two, I got last year at a local Thrift store, 75 cents for the pair!  They are made of wood.

I'm not really sure the best way to display them all?  This year, I just grouped them all on the sideboard.
