I know it’s been a while since I posted, but I really needed some time with my family, and Covid hit us pretty hard. These are so simple and so adorable! These can be painted any color, so they can be used for Halloween or Thanksgiving or just Fall in general! I painted some a cream color, and some pumpkin orange. I put them on my 3 tier tray on display when I was finished with mine.
First I started with a clean area for my craft space, then I gathered all of my supplies. I used Jenga blocks that I purchased at Dollar Tree, but you can use any Jenga blocks you want. I used the little square wooden blocks that Dollar tree sells for the stems. I also used pumpkin colored paint, cream paint, and green for the stems. I used floral wire and raffia for the finishing touches. First I used hot glue put the blocks together. If you want to make sure it is really secure, you might want to put some wood glue on as well. After I got the “base” of the pumpkins made, I painted them orange. Make sure you get all the nooks and crannies, top and bottom. I then painted the wooden squares green for the stems. While those dried, I took my paint brush and just wrapped the floral wire around the bottom of it to make the “stems” for the pumpkins. I put the floral wire bottom of the stem inside the small hole. and secured it with hot glue, then I put the square green block on top for the stem with hot glue. After this, I made a small bow with the raffia and secured that to the front with hot glue. Then they were finished and SO adorable!
