Don’t throw away that Halloween pumpkin yet, recycle it into a Thanksgiving Chalkboard Pumpkin to greet your guests as they arrive on Thanksgiving day! This is such an easy project to do, letting the black paint dry was the most time consuming portion of it all.
It seems like Thanksgiving gets skipped over anymore. We go from Halloween to Christmas and Turkey day get’s overlooked. Even in the department stores it’s a missed holiday, kinda sad in my opinion.
Here’s what I did: rescue one of the exotic pumpkins I picked up to decorate our porch with for fall and recycle it into an outdoor Thanksgiving greeting sign. It’s easy peasy to do…..mask off the stem, spray paint with color of your choice (I picked black), hand letter a saying on it using a wide tip paint pen, and seal with clear spray paint. The project without dry time took all of 15 minutes to do and makes a statement sitting on the stacked rocks in our landscape design. It’s the perfect spot for everyone to see it when they drive up.
If your looking for some creative lettering ideas here’s a few and don’t be afraid of having imperfect handwriting, make it unique and make it your own:
- Give Thanks
- Happy Thanksgiving
- Thanksgiving Blessings
- Be Thankful

- Leftover pumpkin from Halloween
