I love a good project using leftover scrap wood. These easy and inexpensive pumpkins are the perfect addition to your fall decor.
- Scrap wood. I used 2″ x 6″ wood cut in 3 sizes: 6″, 8″ and 10″.
- Paint for the pumpkins. I used a burnt orange craft paint.
- Sandpaper (optional)
- Hot Glue Gun
- Decorative items: Cork for a stem, raffia, ribbon, burlap, twine, wood beads
- Mitre Saw or Chop Saw
Cut your wood scraps to the desired sizes (see above for the sizes I used).
Paint the wood pieces using your craft paint. Let dry.
Sand edges to distress (optional). Add decorative items.
For the stem, I attached a cork to the top using hot glue. Tie ribbon, twine, raffia, etc. to the cork stem for more interest.
