I may be pushing things a little bit, but I have another fall wood craft to share today. After making those wooden apples last week, I decided to get started on some pumpkins. And yes, I do realize it’s still early, but I’m pretty much done with the summer heat already. So I made these rustic scrap wood pumpkins, and now I can’t wait to put them out!
What is it about the seasons changing that gets us so excited? We couldn’t wait for summer, and now, fall just can’t come fast enough. I know the heat definitely has me waiting for sweater weather, although it’ll be a good while before we need another layer of clothing here in the desert!
But anyway, it doesn’t take much to get me excited about fall crafts, and pumpkins are aways fun to make!
These pumpkins are slightly different than the apples or the Jack-o-lanterns I made last year. They’re made from a 2 x 6 wooden board instead of a 2 x 4, so they’re a little wider than the others, but they’re still super easy to make.
How to Make Rustic Scrap Wood Pumpkins
- 3 2 x 6 wood pieces cut into varying lengths
- Twigs or sticks for the stems
- Orange craft paint and some brown paint
