Pumpkin Trio- wood project

 Saw these cute pumpkins here and HAD to make some of my own that way I wouldn't have to have them shipped. I just used a 4x4 and a 2x2 and a dowel. I cut the 4x4 to the sizes I wanted, I think mine are 5-1/2, 7 and 8. Then I cut my 2x2 into 2 inch pieces and had the hubby help me cut the dowels and drill holes so we could glue the stem on top. I have seen these with real sticks glues to the tops as well and think it would be cute I just didn't think of it before I did mine. I gave them 2 coats of pumpkin orange and the stem got 2 coats of brown oxide. I sanded all the edges and added some ribbon to the top.
 This is what the other sides look like, this vinyl was actually from somewhere else, I didn't cut it.
 I did however, cut these pumpkin faces from the Pumpkin Carvings cartridge sized on my gypsy to fit perfectly on my blocks! So I now have a Halloween/Thanksgiving craft and I can turn them for the appropriate season or I can just have them all facing out plain orange :) Truly a craft for the fall!
