4x4 Pumpkins

I have a love from pumpkins, I just love how they look and it's fun to decorate them.  So I made these 4x4 pumpkins.

This is how I made them:
I bought some 4x4 on clearance at a home improvement store.  A full piece of 4x4 wood is actually pretty expensive, so whenever I see these in the clearance section, I always get them.  These two were $.51 each.

Using my miter saw, I cut the 4x4 to the sizes that I wanted.  12”, 8” and 4.5”.

I then put a couple coats of spray paint on them.

For the stems, I used a cut up branch, spray painted green wire and raffia.

I glued the stems, wire and raffia onto the wood using a glue gun.

And now I have some fun pumpkins, perfect for my fall décor!

You could easily add paper or glitter to the pumpkins to dress them up a little too.  I just went with something simple.

I did absolutely nothing for Halloween this year. Maybe I will do some pumpkins next year.
