My fall decorations are...pretty much non-existent.
So I desperately need to add to them!
I made my Fall Wreath last week and it really helped get me in the mood for more fall crafts.
I've had a couple scrap 2x4s laying around the garage for a few months now, so I thought I should finally do something with them!
So I made some 2x4 Pumpkins!!
I had everything to make these on hand already, so this project was FREE! Even better!
I painted each one a different shade of orange and used distress ink around the edges.
For the stem, I used a left over berry branch from my fall wreath. I just took it apart and separated the branches for each pumpkin. I wrapped the pipe cleaners around a pencil and then twisted 2 of them together to make the 'leaves' by the stem.
I had the jute/twine so I just cut 3 strands and tied them in a bow!
I used hot glue to attach everything.
From the same berry strand I used for the stems, I also took some leaves from it and added them to the bottom of each pumpkin.
I think they turned out pretty cute for only using stuff I could find in the house!
I am never happy for summer to end, but at least I have decorations now to embrace the new season!
