This little craft wood pumpkin is my first pumpkin project of the season and I promise it won’t be the last. I am loving this super cute wood piece from the Craft Wood Club. I made this super cute DIY Riser using this same shape. I love how versatile these wood pieces can be.
I started this craft wood pumpkin by adding little half sphere beads to the perimeter of my craft wood piece. I am working on a template for this shape. These seasonal shapes are perfect for exercising this creative brain of mine. If you’re anything like me I am always looking at things from a different angle. If you’re creative like me, you’re gonna want to check out our brand new CRAFT WOOD CLUB (HERE).
Just like with any other craft wood project I love adding a touch of character with a good antique wax. Using a simple application technique by blending with a moist wipe will help keep your wax workable on the surface of your project. I love the blending it creates when it’s worked into a painted surface.
No pumpkin is complete without a cute little stem. I prefer these little stick pieces from Dollar Tree but don’t let that limit your imagination. Spindles, finial, preserves stems would all made great alternatives for this part of your craft wood pumpkin project.
Another little tip I like to use when crafting is using jenga blocks as stands. Most of the wood in our Craft Wood Club is thick enough to stand on its own but due to the nature of this particular shape, these little makeshift stands were necessary.
Look at how precious this little craft wood pumpkin looks with all the finishing details! A couple pieces of greenery and a simple raffia bow is all that was needed to bring this little gem to completion.
This little project reminds me of the children’s book “Spookly the Square Pumpkin” I love it for my own decor but I can totally see it used in a classroom as a visual for littles while reading the book! Again the possibilities are truly endless! I you are inspired by this darling little project.
