I’ve seen so many fall wood pumpkins made from scraps that I had to make some of my own.
I started out with four pieces of scrap wood and some pumpkin orange paint.
After each was painted and dry, I cut the F-A-L-L letters with my silhouette from dark brown textured cardstock. I gave the pumpkin fronts a thick coat of ModPodge and placed the letters in the center. After that dried and the letters were glued in place, I gave it another thick coat of ModPodge to seal it all together.
While that was drying I went out back to search for a nice solid stick to cut for the stems. I attached the stems with a hot glue gun and tied a piece of hemp rope into a bow.
We don’t have a mantel but I found the perfect place for them in our living room.
I discovered that my bookshelf in the corner makes the perfect display area and I can’t wait to decorate it for Christmas!
I added some leaves behind them and a couple of cute pumpkins I found at Rite-Aid. Don’t you just love the Happy Harvest Owl?
