DIY Typography Pumpkin by Jordan Ferney of Oh Happy Day for Design*Sponge
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
