Hi there friends!~ Today I am sharing a DIY BOHO Pumpkin sign. I really enjoyed making this sign. My intent was for our empty nest condo. I needed a few fall sprinkles around.
All my supplies were picked up from Walmart for less than $10.00 total. The rustic board, the wooden circle and leaves, and two bottles of craft paint. Gold and silver were my color scheme. Our condo is on the complete opposite end of our current country rustic home. We went more Mid Century Modern and a few splashes of color.
Not to mention, much more minimal. Although my husband keeps mentioning, I am managing to add more “stuff”. Truthfully, there isn’t a lot space to add more. I somehow am managing.
Grateful we are for the blessings given in life. With the hard times, comes the good times. Our story goes way back in time when we didn’t have two nickels to rub together. In fact, I was the main bread winner at one point while Mike was finishing up College.
We couldn’t even afford a plant! Not that, that matters because I am a plant killer. It’s still nice to add a little life and greenery around.
DIY BOHO Pumpkin sign
This project reminded me of a time I was making little magnets to sell for extra money. I would paint the little wooden ornaments, glue a magnet on and sell them for $10.00 each. I remember making an assortment of them and selling every single one. Some days I even had special orders. You do what you have to do at the time.
Back then I do not recall a Dollar tree being around. Oh the things I could have made and sold. I could have probably paid for our rent easily each month!
Lucy is always content when she is at the condo. She gets a lot more exercise there and not to mention a lot more other doggie sniffs. She loves it!
Simple instructions for this project: Buy a board of choice. As mentioned I purchased this one at Walmart for $6.48. The wooden circle was .77 cents and the small leaves for .47 cents. The paint was 1.20 each.
I painted the circle in gold with two to three coats of craft paint. The leaves got a charcoal gray coat or two and in between the leaves I added the gold.
I used a cinnamon stick for the stem, painted the tip gold some twine to embellish, and make the leaves. I hot glued all in place, and then found some letter stencils I had around to stencil the word Grateful. I definitely gave the pumpkin sign a Boho feel to go with the rest of the place. This is the guest room if you would like to visit us:) You are more than welcome.
Some have been confused over the condo. This is NOT our permanent residence as of yet. Some day we would like to downsize and move to Charleston. Right now that isn’t an option. Mike still has to work here in our current location. We are however, enjoying the condo at least every other weekend since we have become empty nesters. I would have no issues being there forever. It’s a two bedroom, two bath place with just enough room for us. Mike likes to play loud music though, and being in a multi-dwelling, this may pose a problem in the future. It hasn’t yet though! It’s one day at a time. We are living in the moment xo.
