Wood Pumpkin Plaque for Fall Door Decor
Last year, I bought this wooden pumpkin plaque at the dollar spot at Target for $3.00. I planned on using it then, but never got around to it. When I was sorting through my fall craft bins, I found it and knew that I wanted to make a door decor piece with it.
Supplies Used to make a pumpkin plaque for fall door decor
- Wooden pumpkin
- Wood leaves
- Metal flower
- Wood Letter R
- Paint and Brush
- E6000 Glue
Also in my craft stash, I had these wood leaves that had twine connecting them into a banner, a metal flower, and an wood R for our last name.
Since I’ll be using this outdoors, I used E6000 glue for a secure hold. I removed the twine from the leaves and glued three of them around the top of the pumpkin.
Next, the metal flower was glued on top of the leaves.
The last decorative item to add was the wood R. Before gluing it to the pumpkin, I painted it with DecoArt Dazzling Metallics Rose Gold acrylic paint to match the flower.
In order to hang the pumpkin, I added a piece of twine through the hook that was on the back. I glued the twine to the pumpkin and glued a piece of sturdy ribbon over it to keep the pumpkin from leaning forward away from the twine once it was on the door.
I mentioned that this could be made in under thirty minutes, right? Most of that time was waiting on glue and paint to dry.
Simple fall decor pieces are great to put together, especially when you can sort through your craft stash for items that will work together.
