Are you ready for the easiest project to add to your Fall home decor? I recently hosted an All Pumpkin Craft Day for a group of crafty friends – pictures coming soon! – and this project was a hit! Using some leftover wood blocks from my Halloween characters, I created a trio of rustic wood block pumpkins that would be the perfect pop of pumpkin to add to your Fall decor, mantel or vignette!
Wood blocks – Mine were scrap wood cut in 4 inch x 4 inch squares
Mossy green felt
Acrylic Paint – I used Americana Spiced Pumpkin, Pumpkin Patch and Orange Sherbet
Foam Paint Brush
Craft or Hot Glue
Let’s get crafting!
First, sand the wood blocks if necessary, and paint them in various shades of orange. I gave my wood block pumpkins two coats of paint.
While the paint is drying, make the stems with the twine. I created a loop and then just tied a knot at the bottom of the loop.
Then, cut three leaves out of a piece of mossy green felt. (I know, I know. Pumpkins don’t really have leaves on their stem. They just look so much cuter with leaves.)
Finally, use craft or hot glue to attach the stem and leaf to each pumpkin.
Easy right?! The best part about these simple, rustic wood block pumpkins is that you can easily add details to customize them: add stripes to mimic the natural lumps and bumps of a pumpkin, make long twine tendrils, add another leaf or two or even paint on a face to turn these pumpkins into grinning jack-o-lanterns!
