A few weeks ago I revealed our front porch looking all jazzed up for fall time. And I’;ve already shared how you can style your own front porch, an easy DIY Wood sign is coming later this week (it’;s here!), and this post (whew!) is the?super easy scrap DIY wood pumpkins!

And guys…;.. this was not my idea I’;m going to throw that out right now. Jordan surprised these for me. Well, he surprised me with one medium sized pumpkin?and then I followed it up with, “;You know we should decorate in threes, right?”;

Sorryfloral pillow cases, babe! ??

These were built with scrap 1″; x 4″; and 2″; x 4″; lumber that Jordan?had lying around. Even if you have to run to the store, you should be able to make these for less than a few dollars apiece. Score!

I also love that you can choose the color dependent on your personal style. Dark stain and cream for farmhouse lovers, skip the stain and go dark orange for the pumpkin purists! I know I could love these styled several different ways.

Choosing a 1″; x 4″; piece of lumber would work well for small pumpkins, indoor pumpkins, or an area that doesn’;t have a lot of depth. Making the larger ones out of 2″; x 4″; lumber made them very heavy. Choose your base on the size of the pumpkin you’;d like.

Four of your sides will be the same length. The top &; bottom are their own length. This is where you could choose to have short and wide pumpkins, or tall and lean pumpkins. It’;s really dependent on the space you have available. Cut?6 pieces of lumber. Then, you will make 12 angled cuts (1 on each end). Each cut is approximately 30 degrees.

For us we have three sizes:

Small Pumpkin: 5.25″; for all the pieces

Medium Pumpkin: 8″; cuts for 4 pieces, the top &; bottom are 9.5″;

Large Pumpkin: 11″; cuts for 4 pieces, the top &; bottom are 10″;

Lastly, cut a base piece for attaching your pumpkin.

Using your KregJig, screw together the board using the picture above as a guide. Sand down the edges to soften the look of your pumpkin. In the photo below you can see how we tried to distress the sides of the pumpkin.

Once you have the pumpkin assembled, attach the pumpkin to your base board. To attach, you will use the two holes that are facing straight down in the picture above.

Drill a 3/8″; hole (or your copper diameter) into the top of the pumpkin. Place copper into the hole and bend into desired shape. Cut the copper at desired length. Remove and set aside for later.

Now the fun part! I wanted to match these pumpkins to my Harvest Sign, so I followed the same colors as the sign. In doing this, I coated the entire piece with stain.

Then, I used a white cloth and applied the orange paint. Using another white cloth, I quickly wiped the paint off to give it a distressed appearance.?I ended up giving the pumpkins a second coat of paint to make the orange stand out a little more.

Here you could do any of the color ideas that I mentioned above or even take out your sander and really distress it. Have I mentioned how much I love the versatility of these little guys?

Well…;. we are not chemists, so go with us on this part. In a red Solo cup (seriously), I mixed equal parts ammonia and vinegar. Then I dropped the 3 copper stems and caps. After a few seconds I removed them and set them on a paper towel to dry. As soon as they were exposed to oxygen, they turned a cool patina! I love them (and shout out to Jordan for thinking of this detail)!

Finally, hot glue your stems into your pumpkins and glue on the caps.

Glistening in all angles of light, using Mylar in your machine embroidery offers a subtle glittering and?magical effect beneath your stitches. Today?we are going to embellish a beautiful sewing box?to keep or gift a friend this holiday season.

Instead of throwing your old ties (or your dad's ties) into the Goodwill bag, try re-purposing them into cute and comfortable headbands. To make them, you will need a tie you are willing to cut up, and you won't need a sewing machine (you'll be hand-sewing for this project, although you can always try it with a machine).

Hugely popular, roller blinds must surely be the most simple and convenient way of dressing a window. Their virtually limitless adaptability means they are capable of fitting into any scheme. Comprising of nothing more than a sheet of fabric connected to a tube, some may think them primitive or perhaps lacking in oomph! Not so.
