Scrappy Pumpkin

My name is Becky and I am a keeper of wood scraps.  Lots of scraps.

But, you can do so many fun things with scraps--like making pumpkins for fall.

To make a pumpkin I simply place the boards I like together, use chalk to draw a pumpkin shape on the back, cut out the boards with a jigsaw, and then join them with thin boards on the back.

I cut out a separate stem and join it the same way.  I add some wire "tendrils".

Easy and a great way to put those beloved scraps to use!

  1. I love this! Wish I had the lumber to complete this project. Fall is my favorite season.

  2. Super cute. Looks nice & easy to whip together too.

    1. Thanks Deb, it is a quick one, especially if you use lightweight woods like pine and cedar fence boards.

  3. This is so cute and a great use for some of our hoarded lumber!


Thanks so much for taking the time to comment, I really appreciate your kind words!
