I love fall – but for the past 2 years I haven’t done any decorating. None. Nada. At all. It’s a crime, really. At the moment I feel like I have NO time to be creative! It’s non-stop around here and while everything is good, every once in a while I’d like the merry-go-round to stop so I can take a breather!
Especially when my girls ask me in public why our house looks *boring* because we don’t have any decorations up. Yikes!!
I had a blissful 50 minutes all to myself in Michaels last night and I decided that there HAD to be something that I could create easily with NO mess and NO time. I give you my pretty blinged out pumpkin:
I kid you not, it took me 2 minutes from start to finish and it cost LESS than $10!! Here’s the breakdown:
An artificial pumpkin. I chose white, but orange would be pretty too. Right now all pumpkins are on sale for 50% off at Michaels, so it cost me $7.
A bling monogram. I found mine in the Halloween decor isle, so it was also 50% off – coming in at $0.79.
Some bling swirls. Originally I was going to paint some swirls on, but then I found these beauties in the sticker isle on clearance and decided to go the no fuss way. Cost $1.99.
Here’s the fun…..Center the monogram and adhere it to the pumpkin.
Add the bling swirls…and you are DONE.
Seriously folks, it doesn’t get ANY easier than this! It’s perfect for your mantel, bookshelf, table or even outside! At the moment ours is in the entry to the living room and it looks so cute! Since we will be at Michaels this Saturday for Bella’s birthday party (stay tuned for that!) I may just pick up the supplies for another pumpkin (or two!)
I’d love to hear what you are creating for fall!!
