Hi All! Today I want to share how to make Diy wood block pumpkins for fall. These cute wooden pumpkins are super easy and can be use through fall for Thanksgiving and Halloween décor. They would be cute on a mantel, or mixed in with a table centerpiece. They are small enough to add to a holiday tier tray along with other holiday décor.

Normally I am running behind on my holiday décor projects. But this year I am hoping to get a few projects done earlier for Thanksgiving and Halloween. I am thinking of opening an Etsy Shop since I no longer have a Zibbet shop. They were bought out by someone else, but I still haven’t received anything on that yet. So, I am getting started with this project that is quick and simple to make, and a great way to use up some scrap wood pieces. These adorable wood pumpkins will be one of my first listings on Etsy for those of you that aren’t into diy projects.
Diy Wood Block Pumpkins
Start off with a scrap piece of wood or two. Sand off the rough edges then paint orange or the color of your choice.
For the leaves I will be using small wood hearts that I have in my wood parts stash. These I painted green.
Can’t forget to sand the edges of the diy wood block pumpkins, and hearts for that distressed look I love.
Drill a small hole in the hearts just large enough for a piece of wire.
For the wire tendril cut two pieces of anneal wire approximately eight inches in length. Make a small loop in the center using needle nose pliers. The loop needs to be just large enough for a screw to go through. I was going to use upholstery tacks but they were a little to small so I used wood screws instead.
Wrap the ends of wire around a paintbrush leaving about ¾” of each end straight to thread through the leaf/heart. (Don’t forget like I did).
Now thread the wood hearts onto the wire then use pliers to form a small loop or bend to hold the hearts in place.
Now run a screw through the wire loop and screw in halfway in the top center portion of the diy wood block pumpkins.
Bend the wire tendrils of the pumpkins in position. There you have it two super easy diy wood block pumpkins. Are you a diy’er? What is your favorite diy projects for Fall? I do like making pumpkins from wood or tin cans.
