Making this Wood Pumpkin Frame for Fall Decor is an easy way to add a pop of color to your fall decor. A wood frame with a pumpkin cutout simply needs some paint and a couple of embellishments to have a festive look.
I’ve had this wood cutout pumpkin for a few years. I painted it an odd shade of orange and never really liked it. As I was sorting through my fall decor bins, I decided to give it a second life with a new look.
Wooden Pumpkin Decor
- Wood Frame with pumpkin cutout (JoAnn Fabric & Craft)
- Wood craft disc
- Floral Wire Cutter
- Gorilla Clear Grip Glue
- Paint & Brushes
- Floral Paper Wrapped Stems
- Palm Sander
The unfinished wood frame was purchased at JoAnn Fabric and Craft. I painted it using Waverly Chalk Paint in White.
To create a backing for the cutout, I used a wood craft disc. I painted it using Waverly Chalk Paint in Pumpkin color.
After painting the disc, I hot glued it in place by adding a large bead of gorilla glue around the edges. To give the back side of the piece a more finished look, I glued a piece of laminated burlap over the disc.
I thought about painting the grooves on the frame but I knew it would be time consuming to make sure that I didn’t get the paint on spots that I didn’t want it. My next thought was to use ribbon, but I didn’t have any in the right color that was the right width. What I did have was paper wrapped floral wire. I used floral wire cutters to cut two pieces of wire to the correct lengths for each groove. I ran a thin line of glue along the grooves and placed the wire inside the groove. I like the look of the neutral with the white of the frame
I decided that with the white and the neutral, the piece would look better lightly sanded. I used my palm sander to go over the edges.
Since I’m going to have this displayed in the breakfast nook area, I wanted to add a pop of turquoise to match the tablescape. A simple bow is glued to the base of the stem. To give the stem some dimension, I placed a dot of glue on the stem area and added curled twine.
Giving this piece a new look was an inexpensive way to add a fall decor piece to the breakfast nook. I added a thick piece of twine with glue to the back of the frame thinking I might hang it, but I like it better in the stand. I left it in place so that I can choose to hang it another time.

The copper accents go well with the wood pumpkin frame for fall decor. I gave a quick dry brush paint job to the small pumpkin to bring in another pop of turquoise.
