I created a fun, fall pumpkin from reclaimed wood.
I started by making a pattern from a piece of newspaper. I just free-handed the pumpkin on half the paper so that it was symmetrical. I traced this onto two pieces of salvaged barn wood.
I cut out each half with a jigsaw.
Next I gathered a pile of reclaimed wood and trim pieces.
I painted these orange, green, turquoise, and white. I sanded them when they were dry.
I placed the pumpkin halves face down on my workspace and then put the boards face down in the order I wanted and secured them with screws from the back.
A little Minwax Puritan Pine stain over the whole thing completes this fresh, reclaimed, salvaged wood pumpkin--a perfect fall decoration!
