I saw these pretty grey pumpkins at the market and had to bring them home. It is decorative gourd season, after all.

I was going for a little more sophisticated look than a classic orange pumpkin. Enjoy! –Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day

Step 1: Print out a letter of your favorite font.
Step 2: Cut out letter shape with exacto knife to create a template.
Step 3: Hold template up to pumpkin and trace outline (we even taped the template directly onto the pumpkin for the more intricate letters like the ‘F’).
Step 4: With black paint, trace the outline of the letter.
