DIY: Chanel Pumpkin

Fall is officially here which means all things pumpkin! I was feeling tired of seeing the same old pumpkins in stores so I decided to get creative and decorate my own. As usual, I wanted to do something girly and fashionable and that's when the Chanel pumpkin idea was born. The Chanel logo is just so iconic and sleek and the best part is that it's easy to recreate on your own! No artistic skills required. Here's how I did it...

Step 1 - First find a Chanel logo printable online (just search for "Chanel logo printable" on Google Images!) and print out one that you think best fits your pumpkin. Don't worry too much about the color and design because we're only going to be using the logo as an outline. I recommend printing out a couple just in case it doesn't fit. Here's the one that I used.

Step 2 - Now carefully cut out the logo and tape it onto the middle of your pumpkin. I decided to go with a white plastic pumpkin that I found at Michael's but feel free to use whatever color/kind of pumpkin you want. If you're worried about the logo not being straight, then make sure to get someone else's opinion or even place the pumpkin at a farther distance and take a picture of it.

Step 3 - Now trace around the printable with a pencil (I recommend pencil just because you can actually erase it or lightly rub it off with a baby wipe!) and remove the printable once you're done.

Step 4 - Here's the fun part: fill in the logo with paint! I found that using a combination of a thinner brush and a thicker one helps to create a sharper logo and fill in everything perfectly. Depending on what kind of paint you use (I used watercolor paint), it might take 2-3 coats to get it opaque so make sure to be patient and let everything dry before adding more paint. Of course I went with the classic black logo but you can totally use whatever color you want and even top it off with glitter (while the paint is still wet) or create other designs with more printables.

The final results: a gorgeous stylish pumpkin that you can use for years! I'm actually debating if I want to use this pumpkin in my room even after Halloween is over cause it's too cute! haha. I hope you guys enjoyed this post! Please let me know below if you have any other ideas for DIY posts cause I love doing them!
