Pretty cute right? I love the pattern added with the scrapbook paper and the big bow. I also found some paper cover floral wire and added curlies to the bow. They remind me of the vines pumpkins sometimes have. I also angled the corners so that the pumpkins would be a little more round.
Here are my two cents on making a 2x4 pumpkin.
Buy a 2x4. They cost about $2 and you can get two pumpkins out of one. I had my husband cut them down for me. The short pumpkin has five 10 inch pieces and a 3 inch piece for the stem. The short one has six 8 inch pieces and a 3 inch stem piece. Cut the angles on two of the pieces per pumpkin.
Apply a light coat of stain all over. This is optional but it tones down the orange and I like the look. Then use modge podge to apply the strips of scrapbook paper.
Hot glue all the pieces together and top with a cute bow. I made my bow by making two simple bows and attaching them together and added a curly out of floral wire. And that's it, easy peasy!
Here are a few up close and personal pics of each of the pumpkins.
So what do you think? I hope all the ladies in my ward like them and we'll have fun making them. I'll show off pics of all the different combinations after we do them.
Thanks for reading!
