WOOD PUMPKIN CRAFTS

Make these fun wood pumpkin crafts for your home this fall. Using scraps of 1 X 4 wood, some paint and scrapbook paper, you will have some darling pumpkins to accent your space.

I'm hosting Thanksgiving at my house this year. As I've been thinking about it, I decided I wanted to make some fun decor for the tables. But I didn't want to spend a lot of money.

These little pumpkins are what I came up with. I was able to use supplies I already had. The only thing I purchased was the scrapbook paper, which was on sale.

While I was at it, I also made a barnwood version of these pumpkins that turned out so well.
