Fun and Easy Pumpkin Decorating

A few days ago, I came across a tutorial for Monogrammed Pumpkins. I have to give credit where credit is due and say that this was NOT my idea. The smarty pants over at 52 Mantels came up with this fun idea and I'm so glad she shared it!!!
First, you need a pumpkin, that is clean and in good condition, with no "icky" spots.
 Print off the initial that you'd like your pumpkin to have. The font I used is called Traditional Arabic and the size was 500. 
 Trace the letter onto contact paper and then cut it out. 
 Place the contact paper onto the pumpkin. I also cut out some circles. You could cut out any shape that you'd like or even make a face on the pumpkin with the contact paper.
 Take your pumpkins outside and spray paint them! When the paint is dry, peel the contact paper off. You'll dance around your kitchen, like I did when you see how cute your pumpkin turned out.
