Here are my latest pumpkin creations. They were super easy and cheap.
We got a donation in the art room of miscellaneous odds and ends, including these chopped 2 x 4's and 1 x 2's. I couldn't think of anything to use them for at this time, so I decided to re purpose them for the home.I sent my husband to Home Depot to by another piece of wood and he was able to buy something from the scrap bin (it's the largest pumpkin in the back) for 51 cents and he just cut it into pieces for me.
To start with, I spray painted all pieces of wood black.
While they were drying, I cut pieces of paper that were slightly smaller than the front of the wood pieces.
When the spray paint had dried, I hot glued each wooden piece together to form my pumpkin.
Next, I modge podged the scrapbook paper on the front of each pumpkin. After it was dry, I hot glued a wine cork to be the stem. Last, I tied orange ribbon (using different different textures and styles of ribbon) for each pumpkin.
Super easy, inexpensive and cute!
