Make a pumpkin monogram DIY to decorate your walls or door with this fall!
My holiday decorating usually starts with the front door. I love to welcome visitors to my home with a handcrafted piece of decor. While I do love wreaths, I also like to change things up a bit! This fall I’m added a pretty wooden pumpkin to my door decor, and personalizing it a bit. Keep reading to learn how to make this pretty, quick to make fall themed project.
Supplies Used to make Pumpkin Monogram Wall Decor:
- Walnut Hollow Layered Pumpkin
- Walnut Hollow 5″ Wooden Letter
- Folks Art’s Ultra Dye in Lady Marmalade and Solar Power
- White Paint
- Wood Glue
- Burlap Ribbon
- Staple Gun
Step one: Paint the layered pumpkin with the Ultra Dye: Lady Marmalade. This dye for wood provides quick coverage and leaves a very brightly colored finish. Paint the stem of the pumpkin with Ultra Dye: Solar Power. Let it dry.
Step two: Paint the wood letter with white acrylic paint. Let it dry.
Step three: Glue the painted wood letter to the front of the layered pumpkin.
Step four: Create the burlap ribbon bow. Cut a piece of burlap ribbon that is about 12 inches long. Fold both ends toward the middle, and crimp the middle of the ribbon with your fingers. Tie it with a bit of twine.
Step five: String a piece of twine (the one I used is wired, which made it easy to manipulate) through the center of the bow. Staple the ends of the twine to the back of the pumpkin to create a hanger.
This pretty, brightly colored piece of fall decor is ready to be displayed! Add it to your mantle, your photo wall, or hang it on the front door to create a pretty door display. Have fun crafting and creating with Walnut Hollow!
