DIY Menu Pumpkin

DIY Menu Pumpkin @themerrythought DIY Menu Pumpkin @themerrythoughtWhen I was little, we had these menus holders from an old restaurant at our house that my mom printed out little menus for and used at a party she hosted at our house. I remember loving them so much – I loved to play restaurant and I remember seeing the menus in the back of the cupboard from time to time and dreaming about parties I could have with my friends so I could finally use those for real! Those menu holders disappeared over the years, but I still find myself loving gatherings that have a menu at them. It’s such a sweet touch!

This simple painted pumpkin menu is a great option for any fall gatherings you have coming up. All you need is a big pumpkin, some paint, and a paint brush.

We’ve created an updated version of this project for those of you that don’t want to hand letter/paint your menu.
