My First Pinterest Project!

Alright, people. I actually did it. My first Pinterest project. I am no longer a passive pinner!

I'll keep it real though, I had 2 of the 3 necessary items around our condo. Made things pretty easy. Here's the pin I labeled "DIY I could actually do":

After a quick run to West Elm for some (on sale) branchy-things, this is what I put together:

Lift your jaw off the ground. I know. Amazing.

And I'm only slightly embarrassed of our warty pumpkin. Why did we choose such an ugly? It's called a "knuckle head". The guy we bought it from told us that a traditional pumpkin probably wouldn't last indoors (for a month), so we needed something a little tougher. Despite being ugly, it really does appear to be indestructible. They guy at the pumpkin patch even stood on it to prove a point. We just might put it on our stoop closer to Halloween and watch the drunk passerbys attempt to break it. I think that's what they deserve for attempting to destroy our holiday cheer.

Hopefully we'll be able to get a pretty pumpkin in the future.


  1. Love it! I've seen that pic floating around on Pinterest and have been tempted to try it myself - might have to give it a go!

  2. Yay! I actually did my first pinterest project too....mine's not as exciting, but I finally played with using the black paper with a cutout to create shaped bokeh. Oh I can't wait to get going on all the things I wanna try!

  3. @ Sarah : I saw your heart photos on Facebook! They looked great!

  4. "Lift your jaw off the ground. I know. Amazing." Favorite quote of my day...all the people around me are looking at me funny cause I just busted out laughing at that :)

  5. @ rabitstew: Ha! I mean, really, though. Have you ever seen a more intensive DIY? ;)
