Let’s make it!
Choose the scrapbook paper you’d like to use. (You can also paint or Mod Podge fabric or burlap onto your pumpkins!)
TIP: Cut your scrapbook paper as needed depending on the shape of your pieces. If the two sides don’t match, then trace and cut over the printed side. If they do match, you can trace and cut on the back side.
TIP: When you’re tracing, be sure to see which way your print or letters are going. I had to cut one again because my words were going up and down and I wanted them to be legible and left to right.
Now that all the papers are cut out, I’m going to paint the stems of my pumpkins and my flower centers with Waverly Antique Wax.
Time to Mod Podge our paper on! I used my heat tool to dry them afterward.
Once dried, I sanded down the edges just a little. Next, I glued the layers on each pumpkin.
TIP: You can use an emery board or nail file for the sanding process.
Here’s one of the pumpkins with a little highlighting on the stem.
I painted the sunflowers yellow and sanded them down just a little. Then I added the top pieces that I’d already painted with Waverly Antique Wax. See the next picture for the detail on the flower centers! Just a few little white dots to give them personality!
And here is one of the finished pumpkins! It is so cute, I can’t even stand it y’all!
Time to make the base for our project! I have a Dollar Tree wood sign that I’m painting with stain. I’m also wiping the stain off after applying it so it won’t be so heavy. I decided it was still too dark, so I went back over the brown stain by lightly brushing on my White Swan paint.
I then hot glued my burlap to the surface.
Now it’s time to put it all together! This is my favorite part, y’all!
I added two Tumbling Tower Game blocks so that one of my pumpkins would be raised up.
I strung some wood beads for my hanger, and simply put the twine through the existing holes on my sign and tied a knot in the front.
This is one of the cutest and quickest crafts, y’all! Be sure to order your wood cut outs before they are gone! You can see some of the upcoming kits in the images below.
