Initial Pumpkins – Teachers Fall Gift

I bought multiple little Carvable pumpkins from the Dollar Tree. They were originally an awful orange color that looked totally fake and they are all far from perfect but come on people they were a DOLLAR!

The color was quick fix with a little spray paint (Rustoleum’s Heirloom white) and then I let the kids loose on giving them a brown glaze (water downed brown latex paint) job that I wiped off with a paper towel.

These two are teachers gift. I cut some vinyl letters out with the trusty Cricut (LOVE THAT THING) and put their last name initial on the pumpkins. I then hot glued my “pretty” ugly bows ( I cannot make a pretty bow to save my life!) Pretty quick and easy once I finally found my hot glue gun!
