Wood Block Pumpkins
The other day while at Lowes I picked up an untreated 4x4x6. I can’t remember the cost, I think around $10. But, for $10 this one piece of lumber is going to make me a couple cute crafts. These wood block pumpkins were my main reason for buying the 4×4. I got my hubby to cut them down to size and I did the rest, of course. These were so easy to make, let me show you how you can make them, too!
- orange paint
- antiquing paint if you want a more rustic look
- Paint brush
- Sanding block (Only needed if you are doing the rustic look)
- Hot glue gun & glue sticks
- sticks from the back yard
- ribbon and raffia
Step 1: First, cut down down the 4×4. I cut each one a little higher than the next to give the look of a pumpkin patch.
Step 2: Next, paint all the wood blocks orange. Once the paint is dry go over them with a sanding block. I sand the corners till they are almost bare. Once you have sanded all the blocks you can now antique them if you wish. I like to use antiquing paint from waverly. I put a small amount on my paint brush then brush some off on a paper towel, and then apply it to the blocks.
Step 3: Drill a small hole into the top of the pumpkins where you want your stems to go. Apply a small amount of glue in the hole and put the stick in it. Once the glue dries you can add a bow to the pumpkin stems.
