Pallet Pumpkins - Fall is Here!

Welcome back, Everyone!  The weather is getting cooler and some leaves are starting to change on the trees...Fall has arrived and that means - Pumpkins!



I made these last year and since they were a hit, I decided to make them again, with a few minor changes.  After cutting and sanding, the pumpkins were painted with orange craft paint, left to dry, and distressed with sandpaper.  I didn't give them a rub with dark stain this year.  I liked the orange.  


The original plan was to wire the pieces together - and that's what I did last year.  This year, I strapped the backs with paint stirrers and screwed them together.

As you can see, a piece of jute was stapled to the back for hanging.

A couple of silk leaves and a raffia bow were added to complete the look.  


If you would like the pattern, it is available at Her Tool Belt.  It's a wonderful site and if you haven't checked it out, you should.

The pumpkins I made last year can be found HERE.

The new pumpkins will be available at Apple Street Crafts.

Have you started your Fall decorating yet?
