Who else loves crafting and creating with wood? I love creating signs, cut outs, holiday decorations and home decor. Seriously wood is not just for building furniture, you can make the cutest decorations. For this project, I went to our scrap wood collection to see what we had. In the pile my husband showed me some 2x6s that were leftover from building our sons loft bed. They were perfect to create some wooden pumpkin blocks.

The wooden pumpkin blocks are perfect for fall decor and Thanksgiving. You can easily make a set with faces too for Halloween, which I might be doing. This is seriously a simple and easy craft idea for fall decor. Even if you don’t cut wood, you can always ask to have your wood cut at your local home improvement store. For about $3 you can make many DIY painted pumpkins. You can make white pumpkins, orange pumpkins or get creative with your pumpkin decor.

Let’s Create Wooden Pumpkin Blocks for Fall Decor
It was a really hard choice to decide what to do with the wooden block pumpkins, but I decided to go with my favorite fall color. It’s pennywise from Sherwin Williams. My daughter told me I should make them pink, but she wants everything pink.
The pumpkin sizes are:
This is a really easy tutorial and you will learn how to make these in no time at all. Who’s ready for a quick, easy craft idea?
Get started by painting all of your scrap wood blocks with the paint color of your choice. I did two coats on all of my wood blocks.
To turn them into pumpkins it was time to add the stems. I used a 7/16 dowel, drilled a hole in the top and used wood glue to secure the stems.
To give the pumpkins a touch of buffalo check, I tied some ribbon around the stems to match my other fall decor. Isn’t it amazing how a piece of wood can be transformed with a little creativity?
It’s the perfect way to decorate your home on a budget for the fall. The pumpkins look great together or separated. How do you think you would decorate with them?
