We are so thrilled to have made this project as part of DecoArt’s core blogging team. All opinions and craftiness are our own!
You guys know how much I love a pretty monogram. Well, I have passed on that love to my girls and they are all about them, too! When it came time to decorate a pumpkin, the girls insisted that we needed to make it a monogrammed pumpkin.
We also thought every good pumpkin should be equally blinged out with glitter! So off to make a glittered and monogrammed pumpkin!
Here is my secret to making the perfect glittered monogram… double sided adhesive sheets! I don’t have pretty handwriting, so I have to have a little help in the lettering department. I picked up a pack of double sided adhesive sheets from the craft store and was ready to go!
I put a sheet in my cricut and cut out a set of three letters. Super simple and I used the letters from the Platin Schoolbook cartridge that came with my cutting machine.
To add the glitter. I shook a little out on a plate and removed the top paper of the letter. I pushed the letter into the glitter a few times and we were ready to go!
We added a couple of coats of paint to the pumpkin and glittered the stem. To do that, I brushed on some decoupage and shook the glitter over the stem. After it was dry we added the stickers to the front. The very last step was to spray on a coat of matte sealer. I highly recommend using a sealer to keep the paint on a waxy pumpkin and to keep glitter from flaking off everywhere!
Now we have the perfect monogrammed and glittered pumpkin… we just adore it!
