It's hard to believe that Thanksgiving is just around the corner and that fall is coming to an end. If you are hosting Thanksgiving dinner at your home this year, here is a simple and modern way to dress up your doorstep (or anywhere else in the house that needs last minute fall decor).
Gather your supplies: pumpkin, railheads, a pencil and decorative ribbon.
Think about your design before you draw it on the pumpkin.
Draw your pattern onto the pumpkin (you could use a stencil too).
Once your design is drawn on the pumpkin, start inserting the railheads one by one.
(line them up so they are touching on both sides)
Finish up your design or letter and there you go! You have a modern update to a traditional pumpkin!
You can use railheads on any type of gourd - not just a pumpkin!
