How was ur weekend??? What did you do? I wanted to add a bit of more pizzazz to one of our Halloween pumpkins in our patch so I decided that I wanted to ‘decorate it’ with letters, and of course … it had to be economical (that’s how we roll) so … thumb tacks to the rescue!!!
I strolled to Rite Aid store (their stationary ailse) and got white thumb tacks for $1.49. I was nervous about making a mistake .. I didn’t want to tack incorrectly and have pumpkin juice sap out calling squirrels for dinner (lunch or breakfast), PLUS my handwriting is sloppy, soooo ….
I decided to type/print/tape the letters and push tacks OVER the letters (to maintain an even look). Then when I went to pull the paper off, the tacks started coming out (yikes!!!!) … I think the squirrels were starting to call their relatives and freinds over for dinner.
So, onto the next plan .. I grabbed transfer paper, placed it under the letter and pressed against it to get the letters aligned the way I wanted it, then simply pressed the tacks following the outline:
Here it is completed, whatchathink of it?
