2″ x 4″ – repurposed works great!

Sandpaper

Raffia – orange for white pumpkins, natural for orange pumpkins

Paint- orange or white

Paintbrush – cheap brushes work great for this

Glue

Make your 2×4 Pumpkins

  1. Cut your 2×4 into three lengths: 3 inches, 4.5 inches, and 6 inches. If you’re doing just one or all the same size, 4.5 looks great!
    If you don’t want to cut the wood yourself, you can ask the hardware store it cut it for it when you purchase.
  2. Cut 1/2″ x 1/2′ wood into segments: 1″, 1.25″, and 1.5″.
  3. Sand edges of wood. It doesn’t need to be perfectly smooth- just enough you won’t get slivers.
  4. Using a dry paintbrush, dip the very end of the brush in paint. You don’t want a lot of paint here unless you’re going for a solid color instead of the dry brush look. Try a few strokes on a paper before moving to wood. Leave the ends unpainted.Get ready for Fall with these easy 2x4 pumpkins! It's a quick and easy DIY project.

  5. Once the paint is dry, glue the stem on top.
