Fall outdoor decor

I'm joining up the fall parteh at Sarah's today with my BOO pumpkins. I saw this idea on pinterest and I decided to switch it up a bit.

First, I spray painted the pumpkins with Oil Rubbed Bronze. Then, since my oldest was helping me with this craft I made it a little easier for him by scribbling the letters on paper first.

This made it easier for him to "trace" with the silver thumbtacks:

Once the letter was done, I held the thumbtacks in place and gently pulled off the paper.

My stylist-in-training decided that my Martha Stewart web ribbon would be perfect on the urn I painted a few months ago:

Pretty simple and easy, and I love how the thumbtacks reflect light so even if it's getting dark you can see the pumpkins with their BOO :D

Hope you enjoyed this outdoor craft!
