A Trio of Wood Pumpkins

Hi friends,

Fall is my favorite! 🍂🍁🍂 And you can never have too many pumpkins to celebrate the season. 😉 This Trio of Wood Pumpkins is fun and easy to make and will add a bit of Fall color to your decor.

I found my chunky wood pumpkins in the craft aisle at Target. They are about 1-inch thick. The large pumpkin is about 6-inches tall plus the stem and the small ones are about 3.25-inches tall plus the stem. You’ll need some pretty Fall scrapbook paper, paint that coordinates with the paper, Mod Podge, and natural jute twine. I found my scrapbook paper at Hobby Lobby and my paint is Plaid FolkArt in the color Cascade also from Hobby Lobby.

Trace the pumpkins onto the back of the scrapbook paper and cut out. (I love these Cutter Bee Scissors.) Be sure the stem is facing the opposite way you want the finished pumpkin to be!

Using a foam brush, apply 2 coats of paint to the back and sides of the pumpkin letting it dry between coats. Once dry, turn the pumpkin over and apply a thin coat of Mod Podge using another foam brush to the front of the pumpkin and apply the scrapbook paper cutout – smoothing out any wrinkles or bubbles. Once dry, apply another thin layer of Mod Podge over the top of the paper.

I tied 3 lengths of natural jute twine together into a bow and hot glued the bow to the front of my pumpkins.

I’m so happy with the way they turned out! The Fall colors are perfect and the patterned paper adds a little bit of whimsy. 😊
