Wood Scrap Pumpkins - finished pumpkinsDo you have any scrap wood pieces? It's the perfect time to use them up to make wood pumpkins!

You could leave them plain (like I did), add calligraphy phrases like: Happy Fall, Trick or Treat, Welcome, or as a blank slate for your child(ren) to decorate, or paint!

Wood Scrap Pumpkins - supplies
 

Steps:

  1. Paint your wood scraps. As reference my larger square is 5.5" by 5.5". My smaller square is 3.5" by 3.5". I also had a triangular prism piece that I painted brown for the stem. Allow paint to dry.
  2. Wood Scrap Pumpkins - painted square and stem
     
    Wood Scrap Pumpkins - small and large painted squares and brown stem
     
  3. If you don't have a stem, cut a square piece of brown paper. Fold it like pictured.
  4. Wood Scrap Pumpkins - brown paper for stem

  7. Glue stem to smaller wood piece and cut off stem if too long.
  8. Wood Scrap Pumpkins - stem glued to smaller pumpkin
     
  9. Add anything else you want. I hot glued ribbon to create a bow and glued both down to each.
