Tack-fully Yours

Spotted: Yet another New Use for a Household Item. Give a favorite home office supply a new turf to play on while personalizing pumpkins with your monogram or house number.


Supplies:

  • Dry erase marker in a light color
  • Tacks


Instructions:

1. Using your dry erase marker, draw the number or letter on the pumpkin. (Once again, this marker lets you make plenty of mistakes that wash right off.) And don't be fooled–making a straight line on a pumpkin isn't as easy as it looks!

2. Once you're set with your design, begin tacking. You'll want to erase the pen's markings as you stick each pin into its designated spot.
