My favorite kind of pumpkin is a white one. I love neutral colored and white pumpkins of all shapes and sizes.

Today I'm turning reclaimed pallet wood into a stenciled white pumpkin. You can use any old boards for this project.

I attached the reclaimed wood using wood glue and paint sticks... you can read more about it by  visiting this Pallet Pumpkin Patch Sign tutorial.

After I built the pallet, I sketched a pumpkin then cut it out using a jigsaw. I attached it to a stand and added Spanish moss at the bottom.

I painted the pallet white using craft paint. If you're impatient like me, you're going to like my tip for drying paint quickly... just stick it in front of a fan for a little while. 😉

When the paint dried I was ready to stencil. The wreath stencil I had planned on using was too wide for this pallet so I cut it down the center and taped it back together. The wreath modification made it more oval shaped and fit perfectly on the pumpkin shape! 


I'm using  a great cardboard holiday stencil set I bought from Amazon.

I cut out "Give Thanks" from the center of the stencil then re-stenciled it into the center of the wreath.

I added a cork, a fall leaf, moss, and a wire tendril to create a decorative stem then hot glued it to the wooden stem on the pumpkin.

This white pallet pumpkin is gonna be beautiful in my home this Fall.
