DIY Fall Decorations Pumpkins Supplies
- Wood discs. About 1/2″ thick cut from a tree branch. (approx 3 to 4″ in diameter) If you don’t have a way to cut your own you can find them on eBay and Etsy.
- Hot Glue Gun
- Sticks for stem
- String, raffia or ribbon
- Paint wash, if desired
Put two discs side by side. Hot glue on the back and lay a third disc over them. Glue on a 2″ stem. That’s it! These look great as is or you can make a paint wash putting in a few drops of acrylic paint into about 1/4 cup of water and brush it on your pumpkins. Add a bow of string, raffia or ribbon. I liked the green string for one of them as it made me think of leaves.
This one has the light orange paint wash on it.
