i saw a cute buttoned pumpkin on pinterest and decided to make my own version.
step one: pick out and buy a pumpkin.
step two: trace out the letters you want on your pumpkin. unless you have a ginormous gourd, i can't imagine fitting much more than your initials or "boo."
step three: preheat your hot glue gun and get your buttons all ready.
step four: begin tracing your letter with about 1 inch strips of hot glue at a time and adding buttons. if you do more glue at once, it will most likely dry before you get to buttoning it up.
step five: finish a letter and admire your craftiness.
step six: finish all letters and admire your craftiness.
step seven: add a bow, don't ya know.
step eight: decorate for the most bootiful holiday of the year!
(ignore the ugly stuff coming out of my planter and focus on the lovely pumpkin instead, pretty please.)
