Wood Post Pumpkins


I have been working on these for a few days and I am so excited to show these to you!!  I have to give credit to Maria over at You Craft me up!  She came up with this fabulous idea!  I absolutely L.O.V.E. how they turned out.  She even has a video of how to make the notches in your wood!  


You've got to check out all the other wood craft ideas she has on her blog.  She is one Talented Crafty lady:)

This is such an inexpensive gift idea.  The wood post was about $7.50 at Home Depot.  You can get 2 sets of pumpkins out of an 8ft. piece of wood.  She gives all  the details over on her blog!

Here's how mine turned out:


To make the "Pumpkin Patch" sign, I just found a piece of scrap wood that looked about the right size, painted it Burnt Sienna, cut out the letters with my Cricut and paper, then stenciled the letters on with Light Ivory paint.  EASY!
