DIY 2×4 Cinderella Pumpkins

If you recall, last year I made these cute orange pumpkins thanks to a tutorial by the sweet ladies at Lolly Jane.

This year, as I was pulling out all of my Fall/Halloween decorations from the garage, I noticed some extra 2×4’s and 3/4″ wooden dowels left over from the project.

Instead of adding more orange pumpkins to my little pumpkin patch, I thought that a few white Cinderella pumpkins would fit in perfectly.

Armed with my sanded 2 x  4’s and 3/4″x 1″ dowels, I drilled shallow 3/4″ holes into the top center of each of the 2 x 4’s.

Then I grabbed some paint from my stash, Handmade Modern (from Target) in Metallic 20k Gold, Martha Stewart Crafts Multisurface in Mother of Pearl and Apple Barrel Colors in 20575 Sandstone.

I painted the stems gold and the base of the pumpkin with 2 coats of sandstone and 1 coat of mother of pearl on top.

Using 80 grit sandpaper, I roughed up the pumpkins to give them a rustic look and attached the stems using E-6000 (my favorite for everything) glue.

After tying a green ribbon around the stem, off they went to live with the rest of the pumpkins in the patch.

And of course, since its October, my two Jack-O-Lanterns are showing off their smiling faces!

Happy Crafting!
