Take new wooden rosettes from the home improvement store to create some vintage pumpkins to decorate your home this fall!
The hardware store is my heaven! No before I lose you, follow along. There are some AMAZING things at the hardware store that you can use to make some pretty stinkin’ cute home decor for the holidays!
These Rosette Wooden Pumpkins are so adorable and I JUST knew I have to show you have to make your own!
Here’s how you can make your own:
- Wooden Rosettes – 2 ½”; 3 ½” and 4 ½” (this is a link if you want to order them online)
- Americana acrylic paint from DecoArt – Dark Chocolate; Bright Orange; Jack-O-Lantern Orange; Burnt Orange
- Americana Weathered Wood Crackle Medium
- Ribbons – assorted scraps of green
- Paintbrush – 1” flat wash
- Low Temp Glue Gun and Glue Sticks
- Tree Branch – from the yard
- Garden Pruning Shears
Now let’s get to making these cuties!
First, you’re going to want to base coat the wooden rosettes with Dark Chocolate using your flat paintbrush. Let dry. Apply a second coat, if necessary.
Randomly apply Weathered Wood medium with your paintbrush. Heavy in some areas and thinner in others will result in a variety of cracks on the finished pumpkins. Allow medium to dry completely (about 30 minutes).
Apply a thick coat of the orange paint with a very limited number of strokes and do not paint over the same area more than once. As the paint dries it will crackle. Large cracks will appear where the medium was put on thick and small cracks will appear where the medium was put on thin.
Cut tree branch into 1” to 1 ½” lengths with pruning shears and then attach to top, center of each pumpkin with glue gun.
Gather a variety of green ribbons, trim them into 6” lengths and then knot in the center. Attach at base of pumpkin stem with glue gun. This is a great way to use up bits and pieces.
Display a set in your home all Autumn long or give a set as a great hostess gift!
Quick and easy to create with limited supplies, these wooden rosette pumpkins go together in just about an hour. The hardest part is waiting for the paint to dry!
I don’t know about you, but I want to make some more!
