So I promise I made these before they popped up all over blogland :)
I'm just behind in posting, remember?
I saw this way cute project where they made candy corn using wood and beadboard... and I had this amazing pile of molding (I think that's what it is...) just sitting in my garage.
I'm pretty sure it's one of my roadside treasures. Yay!
It caught my eye because of the grooves it had in it... but it was thick enough that they could stand on their own.
Since they were rectangular and not candy corn-esque shaped... I immediately thought PUMPKINS!
So they were cut to size, sanded on the corners and painted
I used a mixture of orange acrylic paint and some brown:
I LOVE the rustic look of them.
And best part, they were made using materials I had so they were FREE. Gotta love that.
At first I was worried that only I would know what they were but then little man came into the room and said 'mommy, I love your pumpkins!' and I knew I was fine :)
I love that he loves my projects!
These little guys were the first piece of fall to enter the house... as soon as they did, I dug out all my fall decor.
I guess they were the inspiration for fall decorating...
