My simple 5-minute Boo-yah pumpkin

Tonight I made the simplest pumpkin EVER.  I have been going around saying this phrase for a couple years now and I thought it would be appropriate to finally make a pumpkin dedicated to it!  I simply stuck scrapbook stickers on a pumpkin. I did color over them with a Sharpie, cause I didn’t like the pink color they were.  Yep, nothing mind-blowing, but this would be great to give as a gift for a b-day or as a dinner guest. Personalize with a few stickers and voila!, you’ve got an instant conversation starter.

I have a few more pumpkin projects in the works!  This month seems to already be flying by too fast. This weekend, I truly intend on decorating.  I’ve got my box of Halloween goodies ready to decorate, just not a clean slate to work with.  Gotta get on it!  I’ll be sure to share results when I actually accomplish something!

Until next time Swellions!

So tonight, this pumpkin ended up being something way more than this, but I’m kinda glad I photographed it simple with just the black Helvetica vinyl stickers. I bought the stickers at Michaels and just stuck them on. It sometimes is so simple to make a big impact. It really doesn’t take much!


You could do this idea with a variety of other stickers. I like the simplicity of this sans-serif font, but that’s me. And I guess it looks kinda Halloweenish, but I’ve seen a lot of simple black and white d├ęcor that you can incorporate into your home. It just looks more graphic and bold rather than super fallish. Also, I am all about non-traditional holiday looks. I love seeking out alternative color palettes!

I plan on sharing what this evolved into in a day or two!

Until next time Swellions!


P.S. I added my project here!
