Everyone has seen a bazillion versions of wooden pumpkins floating around. Well now you have a bazillion and one! I'm all for making pumpkins but I wanted mine to look a little more, well, pumpkin-ie. I think the rectangular ones are cute but just not my style. (Please don't be offended if you have a rectangle pumpkin!)So here's what I came up with!
The hub's response to this wooden pumpkin was, "Where's the bottom?" Men... what do they know! Can you imagine his response if I would have made a rectangular pumpkin?! It would have been, "That's supposed to be a pumpkin?" I'd put $20 on him saying exactly that!
I think it turned out pretty cute!
It was actually fairly easy to make. I just used the jigsaw to round the edges of my wood. I think the outside pieces were 2x6 and the inside 2x4. The topper was a complete accident. There was already a piece of wood shaped like that and I just made a straight edge! This project was completely FREE because I had two different people who were building houses give me their scrap wood. They know what makes me happy :)
So warm and fallish.
I just love the yellow leaves on the branch!
