10 Minute Block Pumpkins

10 Minutes

Hi all! I’m here again sharing another diy pumpkin project. The 10-minute block pumpkins. If you’re looking for some quick pumpkin blocks than look no further.

These super easy pumpkins literary take 10 minutes to make, not counting the drying time.

Let’s get started by adding one coat of orange paint to two scrap wood blocks. All sides except the bottom of each pumpkin.

While that is drying paint the two mini spools brown. If you put them on a toothpick, you can paint all sides.Go back to the pumpkins blocks and paint the bottoms while the buttons are drying.

Now paint the two wooden buttons green. I placed the buttons on a toothpick as well for easier painting.

Distress the block pumpkins by giving the edges a quick sanding while the buttons are drying.

Add some wood glue to the end of the spools and place them top center of the wooden 10-minute block pumpkins. Since I bought some upholstery tacks that I wasn’t able to use in my diy wood block pumpkins project in my last post. I decided to use two and tack down the spools with them. Just a little added measure of keeping the pumpkin stems in place.

Lay the pumpkins down flat and glue the buttons down in place, and let thoroughly dry.

That’s all there is in making these cute 10-minute block pumpkins. What’s your favorite diy holiday project?

    My kind of project ~ simple and yet so, so cute! Love these pumpkins and will make a few to include in my collection of unconventional pumpkins. I like the addition of the button ... to me it "represents" a leaf from a pumpkin vine. Fun, fun, fun!!

    Thank you very much for sharing and inspiring! 🎃 🎃 🎃 🎃 🎃

    The blocks resemble wooden butter presses.
