I’m from the Great Northwest where an umbrella and rain boots are a must in every wardrobe. I can’t complain it’s green, beautiful and there are some super cute rain boots out there! My blog started when my husband started buying me power tools for my birthday and Christmas. I know exciting right?! He told me to start creating and making stuff. He saw something in me that I didn’t. I started creating things and who knew?! I’m in love with crafting.Today I’m here to share a fun, cheap and easy 2×4 pumpkin tutorial.
First, cut your 2×4’s. You can also use 1×3’s. They are slightly smaller and cheaper. I actually prefer them 🙂 For this particular pumpkin cut 2 blocks at 5 inches and the other two at 4 inches. Sand the edges lightly.
Paint the 2×4’s orange. I paint mine on all sides but you could just do the front, sides and top.
I put the mod podge on the block and then put the paper on it. Make sure you get no bubbles (they drive me crazy) by smoothing the paper down with your fingers. I let it dry a little and then add a top layer.
Gorilla glue is the best and it’s time to use some!
Use this gorilla wood glue to glue the pieces together. It will need some time to dry and you are finished! If you like add some embellishments such as ribbon, yarn and/or berries.
