I recently bought a 2x4 for another project, but I had so many little cuts left I started creating all sorts of additional projects...including these pumpkins. I sliced the 2x4 into different heights. I painted it orange, and then took brown paint and a tooth brush and flicked the brush with my nail so it would create speckles. I sanded the edges....and last....drilled a hole in the top and added a twig with some hot glue.
I had some scraps of rick rack I tied around the stem for a 'leaf.' I'll be posting all this pumpkin's 2x4 fall friends very soon, but this was by far the easiest!
