Dollar Tree Jenga Block Pumpkins

7 Materials

How to make cute little wood block pumpkins from a Dollar Tree Jenga block set. One set will make three pumpkins. You can paint them to match your decor.

These adorable pumpkins are easy to make with Dollar Tree supplies. I had the corks, but the ribbon, wood glue, and blocks are all from the dollar store. I have more variations for different toppers and finishing ideas on my Dollar Tree Jenga wood block pumpkin post, so be sure to check that out. If you can't find the game at your store, you can also order it on Amazon.

You will need:

  • Wood glue. 
  • Tumbling Tower Game
  • Hot glue
  • Champagne corks
  • Lace ribbon
  • Paint
  • Scissors
  • Paint brush

Start by gluing the blocks. Make three sets of three and six sets of two. Let dry for 30 minutes.

Then stack the blocks. Have the three block layer as the base, then two blocks, then 1 block. Glue the sets of three together to create a pumpkin. Let dry for 30 minutes.

Paint with chalk paint or acrylic paint. I did two coats and let it dry between coats.

Cut the corks to fit on the pumpkins. Add ribbon around the cork stems.

When they are dry, use them to decorate. I think they look really cute on a 3 tiered tray. You can also set them on a shelf.
