Pinterest Project Tuesdays – Wood Pumpkins

After the drama filled Tuesday with Simba, I was able to finally finish my project for this week! I pinned these a while back and I couldn’t wait to make them. They came out so good and I am going to be so bummed when I have to put them away.

Here is the pin that inspired my project this week. The pin takes you to a wonderful blog called The Happy Scraps. This is also the same pin that I found the idea for the Countdown to Candy Calendar ! Which turned out better than I could hope!

I did my pumpkins a little different than hers but I think both our great! So here is what I did to make my pumpkins!

Here is what you will need:

  • Orange and Brown Spray Paint
  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Green Tulle
  • Sandpaper
  • 3 Wood Pieces

The first thing you want to do is get your wood. I went to Home Depot and purchased a piece of 2x8x10 wood and had them cut it down into different lengths. It was enough wood for 2 sets of 3 pumpkins. I also picked up a piece of scrap-wood for the steams. It was 89 cents!! The first step is to sand down the sides and make it smooth. I sanded down the corners as well so it wasn’t so sharp.

Then your off to spray paint! Make sure you cover everything with an even coat of spray paint. Also, spray paint the stems brown. Let dry completely!

Once dry, you want to Hot Glue the stems down.

Then I took green tulle and wrapped it around the base of the stem to mimic the leaves.

Then your done!!! How easy right? They are super cute and can be used for Halloween and Fall time!

I hope you give it a try and let me know how it turns out!

Until next time!
