Scrap Wood Pumpkin Craft

When we made the shelves in my office there was scrap wood left over and I was doing the :::happy dance::: about that because I had several crafts that I wanted to make out of them! 

The first project is to turn some of them into pumpkins.  I really enjoy the fall season because it is so fun to decorate!

So here we have just some plain wood…waiting begging to be transformed into something new and fun!

I bought several different colors of orange paint as I wasn’t sure which one would give me that “pumpkiny” feeling.

I got them all painted and we are ready to take the next step!

I needed to add stems.  I decided to use these cork stoppers but you can use branches from a bush or tree or even more wood scraps.

I wanted the pumpkins to have a little more dimension to them so I took a screwdriver and “scored” the wood, painted brown over the scored lines and then painted another coat of orange.

I added some berries, some twine and painted the cork stoppers brown to finish them off.

I think they turned out pretty good!

Stay awesome y’all!! ~lisa
