HELLO FRIENDS! READY FOR A DIY FALL DECOR TUTORIAL? HOW ABOUT THIS ADORABLE CHIC-RUSTIC PUMPKIN TRIO? I’VE SEEN SO MANY DIFFERENT WOOD PUMPKINS MADE FROM SCRAP WOOD, I COULDN’T WAIT TO TRY SOME MYSELF, AND I’M IN LOVE WITH HOW THESE TURNED OUT!
I’ll give basic instructions and then show several pictures of the process below. Hope you will try making them and adding them to your fall decor this year!!
2×4 scraps cut to 3 different heights, I cut mine at 4 1/2″, 5 1/2″, & 7 1/2″
gold spray paint
white acrylic paint
lace and ribbon
Step 1: Cut the corners of your blocks to give it a slightly rounded look, and then sand entire pumpkin, giving extra sanding to edges and corners.
Step 2: Spray with gold spray paint and allow to dry.
Step 3: Paint white acrylic paint over the gold and allow to dry.
Step 4: Lightly sand some of the white paint off, allowing the gold paint to show through. Give a little more sanding to the edges to show more gold there. Sand to the desired distressed look.
Step 5: Coat with one coat of polyurethane and allow to dry.
Step 6: Cut 3 stems from your branch and attach to the tops of the pumpkins with super glue.
Step 7: Decorate as you please! I tied a mixture of lace, ribbon, burlap and raffia around the stems.
