DIY Pumpkin Clock

3 Materials
I love to decorate for Fall and have been looking for inexpensive ways to add more pumpkins to my decor. While at Haven conference, I received a round piece of wood and a clock kit (from Walnut Hollow) in the Deco Art session, so I used it and made it into a seasonal clock!
One side of the wood was smooth and the other had a pallet look. I decided to use the pallet side and used a pencil to draw the pumpkin shape.
I used my jigsaw to cut the design, then sanded the edges with a corner sander. I found a scrap piece of wood that was the perfect size to use as the stem. I wanted to add a bit of bling, so I used Deco Art metallic gold paint for the stem. I super glued the stem on with DAP's Rapid Fuse All Purpose Glue.
I applied a coat of Folk Art Ultra dye in Orange to the wood pumpkin using a sponge brush.
Once everything was dry, I attached the clock kit, following the simple instructions and using the hole that was already in the wood. I hung it on my living room wall between two Fall printables.
