Pinned It and Did It

It's Thursday and that means it's Pinned It and Did It time once again.
Today I did a DIY project I had pinned awhile back.
Here is the pin.
I changed my version up a little, but the concept is still the same.
I wanted to leave my pumpkins orange 
and 
liked the concept of a full monogram rather than just an initial.
 
I use these urns every year and thought they would be perfect for this project. 
 I like how all of the elements came together. 
 Here is a tip for you when painting your pumpkin...
DON'T use glitter paint. 
 It comes out uneven and really light. 
 I ended up going back over the letters with
 regular black acrylic paint.
Here is my finished look on the front steps of my house.
I liked this DIY. 
 It was extremely easy and something I would definitely do again.

You did it again! I love this idea! Hopefully I can squeeze in some time to finish my fall decorating outside this weekend. Did you see the pumpkin monogram using thumbtacks? I thought that was pretty cool too.

GORGEOUS! I had this pinned last year, started to buy the supplies for it and never followed through. The furthest I got with it this year is a pumpkin with our last initial painted. Maybe next year? You did amazing and I love the monogram!

Very, very nice. Really lovely.
Can I have your house? Even by looking at the front door, I can guess it is a lovely house.
