Trips to the pumpkin patch are one of my favorite fall activities.  We usually go to at least two or three each year.  So when it came to decorating up my fall chalkboard I knew exactly what I should put on it! :)

If you want to experiment with a little free hand drawing, chalkboards are definitely the way to go and any mistakes are easily correctable.  I like to use light guide lines to show where the tops and bottom of my lettering should be and then just use a q-tip dipped in water to erase it after my letters are drawn.  For the lettering itself, I start with just thin letters to get the spacing correct {see the ‘K’ in the image above} and then fill them out until I like the look.

The pumpkin bunting is actually a mini version of one that I made a few years ago {you can see it on my fall house tour from last year HERE}.  They are super easy to make, but here is a quick run down for you…

  1. For each pumpkin, you need to cut three ovals roughly all the same size.  I used some brown ink and an ink dauber around the edges of each oval to give them a bit more definition.  Stick them together with glue or double sided tape.
  2. Cut two thin pieces of green paper and roll the ends up to curl.  Glue in place behind the ovals.
  3. Cut a stem from brown cardstock.  It is kind of hard to tell in the photo but I ran my scissors around the edges of it to rough it up a bit.  Glue in place behind the green curls.
  4. Punch two small holes in either side of your pumpkin and string together with twine.
