  1. THIS IS AMAZING! I LOVE GOLD AND GLITTER! I defiantly need to try this double sticky stuff and the glitter. And as far as you mat goes…your lucky I wish mine was still sticky. I have been meaning to “restick” mine for sometime and haven’t got around to it. I have to tape my mediums on. How crazy is that. Maybe I’ll pick up a couple of mats on my next Silhouette order. But anywho…I love this project and I’m pinning for sure! GREAT JOB!

  2. Stopping over from the Silhouette Challenge!

    Great job in the cute Monogrammed Pumpkin. Glitter is seriously the best. Somehow this girl manages to contain the messs– its like a miracle. [knocks on wood]

    You’ve got my PIN haha.

    Much love,
    Trisha D.

    • Thanks Trisha! I was so worried about getting glitter everywhere, haha…I did it in a bin, in the garage. I haven’t found any glitter in the house yet, so I think I was successful!

    • Thanks Hima! I agree, I think pumpkins are lovely the way they are, but I couldn’t resist a little bit of glitz and glam ;-)

    • Thanks Pam! By itself, it might be a little too glitzy for me…but next to the rest of the pumpkins and things, I love the little bit of elegance it adds :-)

    • Thanks Carrie! I am so happy with how it turned out…and it really was SUPER easy! Especially with Christmas coming up, I have a feeling I will be doing lots more projects with double sided adhesive and glitter :-)

  3. Loving this project?! First, where did you get such a perfect white pumpkin. We were at the patch yesterday, and didn’t see one with such a perfect shape. It is real, right?

    Second, I love this idea. I’ve pinned it to my Halloween board! :)

    • Nope Emily, it is from Michael’s! I couldn’t find anything but orange pumpkins anywhere either. But I’m glad that I’ll get to use it year after year! Thanks for pinning :-)

    • Thanks Jacquelyn! I love the personalized touch of a monogram, too :-) Thanks so much for posting the Silhouette Challenge links on your blog – so sweet of you! And thanks for stopping by!

    • I hear ya, Randi, I was a bit apprehensive about using glitter…but I did it in the garage in a bin and kept it pretty well contained…I haven’t found any in the house yet, so I think I was successful!

    • Thanks Michelle! If you wanted to, you could do this with just some Elmer’s glue and glitter pretty easily…freehand it onto a pumpkin, or even print out your pattern and trace it onto the pumpkin first! Although I’d highly recommend a Silhouette if you’re considering it…and I hear they’ve got a great promotion going on now!

  4. Okay, you are totally responsible for empowering me to tackle my DIY Photo Booth Props that I shared in my post Tuesday…so thank you for singing the praises of Double-Sided Adhesive. I have now seen the light myself! It’s amazing. And I actually have a pumpkin project for later this week, and I think I might need to use some double-sided adhesive in the process. Your monogrammed L just looks so fantabulous! (And you know I’m partial to the letter L.) Gorgeous!

    • Aw, shucks! So glad I could be the nudge you needed to give it a try :-) I still can’t believe how easy it was to use…I foresee a lot of glitter in my holiday projects!

  5. I love this so much! Im a white pumpkin kind of gal. And a glitter kind of gal. Im in love with your pumpkin! One of these days ill have to buy one of those silhouettes, theyre just so dang expensive but i see these cool projects, ugh!

  6. […] Today I have a real treat for you, friends!  A project that combines three of my very favorite things…pumpkins, Cammie {my beloved Silhouette Cameo}, and… GLITTER!   This week, I promised to share with you a variety of ways to use the various specialty media that’s on sale right now at Silhouette.  But unlike the other projects I’ve showed, this project was not my idea!  Instead, this piece of festive fabulousness is the creative brainstorm of Meredith over at Unoriginal Mom. […]

    • Thanks, Amy! I can’t say enough great things about my Silhouette…it was definitely the best crafting purchase I’ve ever made! If you get one, you won’t regret it :-)

    • Hi Dana, thanks for visiting and following! I have to tell you, I didn’t know how much I needed a Silhouette until I got one…the crafting possibilities are endless! There are always lots of Silhouette giveaways going on in blog-world – be sure to enter, you might just win one!

    • Thanks, Krista!! I love the white pumpkin, too…I was disappointed I couldn’t find a real white pumpkin anywhere, so I had to settle for a fake one. Oh well!

  7. If you don’t mind me asking, where did you get the large script “L” from?? I’m new to the Silhouette world and just ordered the double sided adhesive so I can tackle this as my first project!!

    • Hm, without venturing outside on this chilly fall evening to measure it, I’d say it’s between 10-12″ tall? I bought it at Michael’s last year, but have seen similar ones there this year!

  9. Love the idea. Can this double sided product be used on fabric or is there a glitter product that can be adhered to fabric. Also, how large is the initial and where can I get it. Thanks.

    • Hi Marianne, I’d recommend using glitter heat transfer vinyl on fabric for a similar effect! You’d need a Silhouette machine (as described in my tutorial) and can create your own initials with fonts you have on your computer using the Silhouette Studio software. If you don’t have a Silhouette, perhaps some kind of glitter fabric, iron-on interfacing, and a monogram stencil?

  10. […] about some gold dipped place cards? 7. Woah!!! Turn a pumpkin into a wine ice bucket. 8. Well a monogram, of course. 9. Can you believe these are thumbtacks?? 10. Write some witty words using […]

  11. How creative you are. This monogrammed pumpkin is stunning. I will make this and it will look great to take this pumpkin in my living room

    thanks for your post

  12. You KNOW you ahd me at “glitter” – What a smarty pants way to monogram. I’m so low tech when it comes to crafting. I love that you could just cut the letter out! And, that these pumpkins will last and last :)

  13. These Christmas wood slice ornaments are indeed beautiful!

    I’ll “steal” this idea and add it to my Christmas tree!

    Thanks for sharing this beautiful article!

  14. You can also mix some glue with about double the amount of glitter to make a paste to paint your goodies with. You can add more layers if you want to. Glitter won’t go anywhere without the sealer! I like this method because you can feel the texture of the glitter when you hold it after drying.

  15. These Christmas wood slice ornaments are stunning! I love the rustic charm they bring to the holiday decor. I will borrow this idea and add some to my Christmas tree. Thank you so much for sharing this inspiring article!

stay-at-home mom to three beautiful children, wife to an incredible husband, and daughter of a loving God. I freely admit that I am not always the most creative or original person when it comes to crafting, decorating, organizing, cooking, etc...but I love being inspired by great ideas and putting my own spin on them! Look around, stay a while, and I hope through my *unoriginality* I can provide some inspiration to you, too!
