Clear Scraps Pumpkin DIY Medium Pallet -- Hello Fall Pumpkin

Hello all!  Who is enjoying their fall crafting?

Are you making some beautiful fall gifts or home decor?

Laura here with you all today, and I've got a super cute

little pumpkin project that is perfect for your own decor,

or it would make a great hostess gift to take along if someone

else is hosting Thanksgiving or any other fall gathering!


Isn't it a cutie?  This starts with the Clear Scraps Pumpkin DIY

Medium Pallet.  LOVE this shape!  Would make a great project for

Halloween too....I'll keep that one in the memory bank for next year!

I used orange acrylic paint for most of the base, but I left the stem.


In the pic you can see I filled in the stem with green for some

contrast.  I also added a little bow with a textured ribbon and

some twine.  You can see the pallet slat behind the pumpkin

peeking out in the natural wood.  You can use a brush and paint

that right up, but it's fun to mix it up and give a little different

look sometimes.  I like to leave that bit of the raw wood showing.

After everything was all painted up and dried, I started to decorate.


To put the paper on to meet the curved edges of the pumpkin,

I started with about a 2" by 8&1/2" piece of striped patterned paper,

so a little longer than I wanted, inked it, then glued it down on the

pallet, and trimmed the edges to fit the curve of the pumpkin.  I did

the same with the strip of cardstock and contrasting patterned paper.

 Then I added a 3x4 journal card, and some chipboard and stickers

in layers to finish off the project.  Cute, simple, quick, and a

perfect little thank you gift, or a nice piece of decor for your table.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

Hope you are enjoying all the fabulous inspiration this month!
