November is a great time of year to stop and say thanks. In the past I’ve dropped off flowers or soup to say a sweet thank you to important people in my life. This year I am going to use pumpkins! We have a pretty large collection of pumpkins left over from Halloween that need to be festively re-purposed.
To make these thankful pumpkins. You’ll need spray paint, a metallic pen, and pumpkins (check the clearance sections if you don’t have any left over). Spray paint the pumpkins with a pretty metallic color on top, spray a bold fall color on the bottom, and use a metallic pen to write in words of thanks after the paint has dried.
Deliver to the doors of your dearest friends with a kind note of thanks. It’s a great use for the left over pumpkins and will make everyone feel amazing this weekend. Create a similar look with mini pumpkins for fall party favors, or write in guests names for easy Thanksgiving seating cards.
While we get to delivering, here are a few other nice ways to say thanks…
Write it out on a pie crust | Thanks for popping by with popcorn! | Thank you paper baggies to bring to school or the office | Thanks for coming apple roasting favors | A bouquet of cinnamon rolls is always a great idea | Mini pumpkin thank yous | And adorable donut thank you tags.
I wish I could drop one of these pumpkins off on each of your door steps this weekend. Thanks for hanging out here with me this fall & happy weekend! xoxo
