I love being able to use up scraps of wood for something purposeful. It’s satisfying to put to use ‘extras’ that you’ve saved in the past, not to mention, being able to make something for almost nothing! If you have the room, save those scraps, you never know when they will come in handy. These DIY Wooden Pumpkins are a fun weekend craft you can do with things you probably already have on hand!

HERE’S A FUN POST WITH SO MANY IDEAS ON HOW TO USE THAT SCRAP WOOD!

HOW DO I MAKE DIY WOODEN PUMPKINS?

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!

SUPPLIES NEEDED:

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 grunge 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.

  1. a power miter saw would cut the corners easier than a table saw.
