Wooden Pumpkin

Isn't this the cutest pumpkin that you have ever seen!!!!!!!

Been down in my craft room for the day making pumpkins when I remembered

buying this wooden plaque at the $ store.  You know where they sell wooden bird houses

and papermache and other wooden objects for you to paint.

Picture this pumpkin on its side with a chain attached.

(Sorry I forgot to take a picture)

Well as I was flipping thru the pages of  this months Country Sampler
when I came to this page

See the cute pumpkin on the side of the wreathe.

Well off went the bells and whistles. I grabbed my wooden plaque drew out my pumpkin

top then went to the scroll saw and cut out my pattern.  A little sanding and a pumpkin was

born.  Next I painted it brown then added the orange to the top and painted the

the stem green. Once it was dry I gave it another light sanding.

Now comes the star.  Went to hubbys work room and found a piece of  wood.

Again drew out my star and then cut it out with the scroll saw.   Did I ever mention that

I used to be in woodworking. Asked for my scroll saw for Xmas one year.

Anyhow, back to the pumpkin.   Now paint the star brown add a little orange . When dry ,

 it's time for the raffia. Make a large bow and use your glue gun to set in place then glue

the star in place.

There you have it a WOODEN PUMPKIN.......
