DIY Scrap Wood Block Pumpkins

30 Minutes
Welcome to Day 10!

Thanks so much for joining me for day 10 of our 12 Days of DIY Fall Crafts series! Today we are going to make cute pumpkins for outside with scrap pieces of wood!

I have a HUGE pile (it’s not even really a pile, it’s a wall!!) of scrap wood that is from my house during our rebuild. My husband and I have used several pieces of the wood for various projects around the house, but we haven’t made a dent. In an effort to keep using up some of the scrap wood, I decided to make pumpkins!

  • scrap wood
  • braches
  • large drill bit (I used 3/8) and drill
  • Dixie Belle chalk paint in Terracotta and Fluff
  • raffia
  • hot glue gun

Let’s Make It Together!

If you would rather not watch the video, here are the steps in photos

1. Gather scrap wood and cut to desired size

2. Using a 3/8 drill bit, drill holes in the top of each pumpkin for stem

optional: omit this step and attach the stem to the pumpkin with hot glue

3. Paint your pumpkins

I used Dixie Belle Chalk Paint, my favorite!

4. Attach stem and tie raffia to add some extra flare!

These little pumpkins turned out so cute! They look really sweet sitting on my porch next to my mums!

Not only is it great to use up scrap pieces of wood (especially because wood is so expensive right now!) these pumpkins are a great alternative to carving pumpkins, if you’re not about touching pumpkins guts!

These pumpkins are durable and able to sit out side for the Fall season! It’s so easy to decorate your porch with these cute scrap wood block pumpkins!
