2X4 Pumpkins

{Made By Me Monday!}
2x4 and Bead Board Pumpkin Tutorial
These are super easy, inexpensive and adorable!! Remember my 2x4 candy corn? Well, today I am going to show you how to make 2x4 pumpkins! These are DARLING!!! 
supplies needed:
bead board/trim
craft paint
We bought all of our supplies at Home Depot, and the entire project cost me under $3.00 to make! I cut the 2x4's and beadboard at 3", 6", and 9" tall.
You can use any kind of beadboard that you want to, I used the chunky stuff. Paint it whatever color you'd like! I mixed orange and black to make a rust orange, I think it's the perfect FALL color! (or you can just stain them, that would be cute too!) 
I used 2" nails to secure the beadboard to the 2x4's. (I only used 6 nails, not 25 like the picture shows! HA!) Pound in your nails to the front of the pumpkins. I think it's SO cute to bend the nails over! Use a bit of sandpaper on the fronts, of course.
Next, use bigger nails to make your pumpkin "stem". I painted the nail heads black just to make it even cuter! :)
Then, ribbon it up!! Add as much or as little as you would like. For me, the more-the better!!
And that's it! You have a super cute set of 2x4 pumpkins.
Easy Peasy!
TOTAL TIME SPENT: 45 minutes
