Painted Wood Pumpkins for Rustic Fall Decor

I find pieces of Monkey Pod Wood at thrift stores from time to time, but I recently found a couple of them that sparked an idea. Both were scratched up, and with their short little handles, I quickly envisioned them as painted wood pumpkins.

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

Buffalo Check Decor for Autumn

This project, my friends, was driven entirely by my obsession with one of Funky Junk Interiors’ most recent stencils. She created a Buffalo check stencil for her Old Sign Stencil Shop (affiliate link) and I have been dying to try it out. I decided to create some Buffalo check decor on a wood tray from the thrift store using her stencil. I thought it would be lovely as rustic cabin decor to use for my autumn decorating!Read more ›

Specifically, I envisioned them as tablecloth weights for an outdoor autumn soiree.

And normally, that wouldn’t be a big deal…but as you may recall, we can no longer recycle glass in our county. So, I’m once again tasked with coming up with ways to recycle glass into projects. And this time, I decided to do some liquor bottle painting and transform them into Fall pumpkin decor.

Wooden Pumpkin Decor and Trinket Box

Wooden Pumpkin Decor and Trinket Box

Somewhere in my Pinterest meanderings, I stumbled across a trinket box that had been made by upcycling a pair of round bowls and painted to look like Earth. I knew I wanted to do something similar but as wooden pumpkin decor instead of Planet Earth. I just needed the right set of vintage salad bowls. And then one day, there they were, staring me in the face from the Goodwill shelf.Read more ›
