Scrap Wood Pumpkins

This has been a weird week for me. I have been way more crafty than normal. And here's why... I love fall and fall decorating, but I'm cheap. I have to be. I can't run to Hobby Lobby and throw down fifty bucks or more on fun decor (though that would be SO much fun). But I CAN decorate with stuff I already have. And that's what this project was. I spent $0. That's right. What I didn't find in Matt's shed, I had in my craft box.

I found the idea here. (Of course it wasn't mine. I'm a craft pirate.) They are scrap wood pumpkins. She took more time sanding and making her pumpkins smooth and rounded. I went more for the 'rough', finish-before-the-kids-get-out-of-the-tub look. But I really like the result.

I was so excited to show the kids, and the first thing Estella Dru said was, "Pumpkins are round." Sigh.

Again, if you're looking for some easy, adorable fall projects, go visit the Idea Room's fall projects and ideas link up party here.

As for me, my craftiness is officially over for the fall season.

SUPER cute! I think their squareness makes them even more adorable!
