I have been seriously off my crafting game lately! School, and life in general is getting busier every day and I'm sad to say crafting has moved down on the priority totem pole. Well, this weekend I needed a break from all the school work, so I sent hubby outside to cut some 2x4's that I could make into pumpkins.
what you'll need:
2x4 piece of wood, paint (i used orange and brown), sand paper, scrapbook paper, mod podge, hot glue gun, ribbons/wire or whatever you would like to decorate the stem
FIRST: Cut the wood.
Tall Pumpkin- 7- 8inch pieces
Short Pumpkin- 5-10in pieces
For each pumpkin, 2 pieces of wood should have 30 degree cuts on each side. These pieces will be the top and bottom pieces of your pumpkin and will make the pretty curve that gives it a rounder look.
SECOND: Paint the wood, mostly just around the edges. I started painting the whole thing, and then realized when I was almost done that nobody was going to see the tops and bottoms once I glued them together. Oops!
THIRD: Sand the edges of each piece to give your pumpkins a weathered look.
FOURTH: Apply scrapbook paper of your choosing to the front of each piece of wood using mod podge. This process is similar to making wood block letters.
