DIY: Posh Nailhead Pumpkins

As a follow up to this week's ezine,
Interior Trends: Budget Friendly Fall Decorating Ideas
and a preview of Friday's blog post... Gearing up for Halloween, I
 bring you a tutorial of such a cool autumn idea from Karen at
 Strictly Simple Style and

First gather your white pumpkins and upholstery tacks (try your local fabric store).
Depending on your color scheme, you could also dab them with paint... say, light turquoise?

Print out a large version of your intial and trace the outline onto the pumpkin...
creating a faint line

Remove the paper, push your nailhead in along the line... and viola- you are done!

These must go on my front porch!

The designs are endless... house numbers, fleur de lis, crosses, polka dots!

There's not one thing about this picture that doesn't make my heart skip a beat...
uh, the clock? WOW!

Cottage Living, you do not disappoint-
Easy and Inexpensive... it doesn't get much better than that!!!

If you do this, email me a picture!

Until next time,


  1. What an awesome idea! I am TOTALLY doing this!

  2. Love this idea! I'm going to do it, too!

  3. Cool idea.. Pumpkins into rare and unique decor for your house. You're such an intelligent person to thinked about that design. WOW...
