Wooden pumpkins last from year to year, unlike that rotting vegetable on your front porch! Turn your scrap wood pile into one of these wooden pumpkin ideas!
Seasonal decorations are the perfect way to use up that scrap wood pile! I’ve made giant conversation hearts for Valentine’s Day and oversized watermelon slices for summer out of 2 x 12 remnants. Fall is all about the pumpkins (PSL, anyone?) and most of these wooden pumpkins were created from free lumber. There are so many takes on the humble pumpkin, I’m not sure which one I like best!
