Wood Slice Pumpkin

I found a bag of tiny 1/4 inch wood slide vase filler on clearance at the craft store and I immediately knew I wanted to cover something with it.
Enter the dollar store styrofoam pumpkin. After giving the pumpkin a once-over with brown paint, so any of the exposed surfaces wouldnt' be obvious, I used a glue gun to attach hundreds of little wooden circles to the outside and then wrapped the stem with some green jute twine. The end result is strangely mesmerizing.

Real slices of wood decorate the outer surface of a dollar store pumpkin, creating texture and interest on the surface.
Total cost of supplies: Under $2

      @Karen D It went faster than you would have thought. I spread the glue all over the surface and then stuck them all down.. I didn't add them one-by-one

    Great job - I have also sat and glued small items bit by bit and it can be time consuming but when it's done - rewards of taking that time !!

  • Great idea!
