October is my absolute favorite month of the year. And the perfect way to decorate for this celebration-filled month is with these polka dot pumpkins.
Every year, I am chomping at the bit to get out to the pumpkin patch. This year I was inspired to try out these white Sharpie paint markers (we got one at the BHG Stylemaker workshop) as well as just a plain ol’ regular black Sharpie pen. This was the easiest DIY ever – not to mention mess-free — and you could probably come up with any design you wanted!
I followed the natural striations on the pumpkins to grid out my polka dots, regardless of the size. And I also freehanded a monogrammed “S” on one too.
I’ll probably wait until right before Halloween to put these babies outside. Somehow our squirrels feel entitled to any pumpkin we put outside.
This was seriously the easiest DIY – and one that any kid could do too. I think it’d be fun to use the metallic Sharpies too!
