Natural Wood Pallet Pumpkins

I can't wait to show you this project since this pallet has such beautiful wood.  The colors and textures were amazing and there was no way I was going to hide it. The first thing I did was pick out four boards that were relatively straight, created a pattern to fit, and drew the pumpkins on the boards.
 Here's a close-up:
My jigsaw made short work of this and in no time I had three pumpkins cut out.
All they needed was a little sanding, mostly to get rid of the blue Sharpie lines and it was time to put them together.  
I used some strips of wood that I found at a yard sale and drilled a hole through it and into each piece of pallet wood.
A screw was attached to each piece and the pumpkin was put together.
Each pumpkin was sprayed with a clear coat of Krylon and a jute bow was tied around the stem.
You may notice the wood is different in this pumpkin.  I did another set with more of the boards I had laying around.
In order to dress them up a bit more, I added the metal word 'Harvest'  to this one:
And that was it.  I still think this is the prettiest pallet wood I've found so far and I will leave them as part of my decorating through Thanksgiving.  
Halloween is almost here and that means that the holidays are right behind it.  Stop back for more holiday ideas in the upcoming weeks.  What have you been crafting?

I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow.  If you click on those 3 little lines at the top left of the blog, you'll see where to find me...or click on the icon below to share.

  4. A cute way to use pallet wood. Unfortunately kids were we live take the pallets into the bush to have fires. They leave all the nails on the ground and it makes for an unsightly mess and unsafe for walking. - Margy

    1. That's a shame, Margy. I cut the nails with my sawsall and some of the things I make still have the nails in. I think that's part of the beauty of pallet wood. Thank you so much for stopping by!

  5. I love these pumpkins. They're a great way to add some Halloween decor that isn't orange or black. Softens things up.
