Since we are going into cooler fall weather, I wanted to share a fun and simple Fall project that anyone can make with wood from your scrap pile – A scrap wood pumpkin!
All you need for this project is a couple pieces of 2×4 wood and 2×6 wood! I found both in my scrap pile – but feel free to swing by Home Depot and grab a one of each a make a few of these for your home! Cut your pieces down – I cut two 2×4’s at 6 inches and two 2×6’s at 7.5 inches. I just did what I thought looked best – but make some bigger and smaller if you want too!
I used Rustoleum Cinnamon and sprayed the wood down.
When they were dry, I used my cornercat and sanded the edges a bit.
Lastly – and the thing that makes the pumpkin – I tied the whole thing up with green ric rac! I love it! I makes it look wavy – sort of like a real pumpkin!
I tied the top in a bow to look like “leaves.”
and your done! so simple but super cute!!
