Decorative Pumpkin Painted on Scrap Wood


It all started with a small piece of scrap wood.  The beginning of Fall.  This little project only took a few minutes, but will look great leaning against a pot of mums, or in any autumn themed space!

First, I stained the wood.  Always stain the wood!  :)

Here we go, nice and stained!

I let the stain "dry" for a few minutes (okay, I'm impatient) and used a creamy white to color block a pumpkin shape.  

I then used brown to make a stem and shade in some grooves.  I went in with another layer of cream to highlight the top of the pumpkin, as well as highlight the top of the stem.

And there you have it!  A new Fall decoration that only took you 10 minutes...assuming you didn't wait the allotted time for the stain to dry.  ;)

    1. It might have taken a little bit longer...I didn't really time it...but it felt like 10 minutes! haha And I'm sure you could print a pumpkin out to use as a stencil if you aren't sure about drawing one!

  2. I definitely agree with you on the stained thing. Stained wood is ever so much prettier!

  8. This is my kind of craft. I can rummage through the hubby's wood scraps to do it and I can finish it before the kids even figure out that they should be bothering me.
