I just LOVE Fall decorations. These Wood Block Pumpkins have been on my “to-do list” for a while now and since I’ve started to design for Glue Dots®, I noticed that the box reads Glue Dots® can be adhered to wood. Hmmm, really?So, that inspired me to bust out the power tools and make a Fall project outta wood and Glue Dots®.
The blocks are cut at 6, 8, 10 and 12 inches long from a 1.5 x 3 inch piece of wood. I painted them orange and then lightly distress them with a power sander.
When I was outside distressing my freshly painted blocks, hubby comes outside and says “Why are you sanding them? Didn’t you just paint them?” Ha- it’s called distressing, duh and it’s my crafting therapy, just go back in the house, pleaz….
I adhered the pumpkins together in a cluster using Glue Lines®. Yep- the Glue Dots® package is correct, the Glue Lines® worked great to hold the edges of the wood blocks together. Then, I tied a jute ribbon around my wood block pumpkins and held the ribbon in place with Craft Glue Dots®.
To embellish my pumpkins, I cut various sizes of leaves from Cricut Flower Shoppe cartridge, embossed them with a swirl folder and adhered them to the pumpkins using Craft Glue Dots®. The pumpkin stems are cut from a 1″ wooden dowel, painted brown, wrapped with green wire and adhered with guess what? Yep-Craft Glue Dots® of course.
To finish my Harvest, I made a little sign stamped with a Fall sentiment and assembled the sign together using Craft Glue Dots® and adhered the sign on to a dowel using 1″ Glue Lines®.
