Round Wooden Pumpkins


Yesterday, I shared DIY halloween books that were super cheap and easy to make.  Today, I'm back  with another quick and inexpensive fall project.  A few months ago I was lucky enough to inherit a bunch of craft supplies from my grandmother.  Some of those supplies included a huge assortment of wooden balls.  For this project, I grabbed 3 different sizes and turned them into mini pumpkins.

I started by painting all the wooden balls orange and white.

While they dried, my son and I walked around the yard to gather a bunch of sticks to use as stems.  I tried to find ones that I thought would fit snug into the predrilled holes.  Once we thought we had enough sticks we headed inside to see which ones fit.  I felt like Goldilocks.  Many were either too small or too large, but then a few were just right.  Once I found the sticks that fit snug into the holes, I added a bit of wood glue to hold them in place.

I liked the white ones, but my daughter said they didn't look like pumpkins, so I displayed a few orange ones just for her.

I'll be back on Friday to share my mini Halloween tour, so make sure to stop back to see the rest of my spooky halloween decor.
