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!
