This project was not on my ‘to-do’ list for this fall, it sort of just happened. And those are sometimes the best ones. I was staring at some scraps of lumber that had just been cut from a larger project I was working on and I was seconds away from tossing them into the recycle. Well, one thing led to another and I came up with my first fall project of the year… Industrial Decorative Pumpkins.
I started with 4 pieces of scrap wood. They measure 3″X 3 1/2″ X 5/4″. I gave them 2 coats of Rustoleum White Spray Paint and let them dry.
I used my Silhouette to make my letter stencils in Capital font. I actually used a black Sharpie to stencil the letters onto the wood. Paint would also work great.
To give them an industrial look, I used a screw for the ‘stem’ of the pumpkin and copper wire for the ‘vine’.
The copper only cost me .99 cents and that was my only cost for this project. I purchased 1 foot of copper wiring from Lowes and then took the casing off to find 3 copper wires. I curled them around my finger to give them their shape.
You could also use these as Halloween decor and say “Boo” or “EEK” on them.
I didn’t provide a full tutorial for these but definitely could if any one needs it. Just let me know!
Have you started decorating for fall yet?
