Fall Fever: Please Welcome Kim from A Girl and a Glue Gun!

hi! i'm kim! i blog HERE at a girl and a glue gun
and i'm super excited to be here!
last time i was at bunco the girl had the cutest square pumpkins on her table...
and so i recreated them here just for you!


 i took a quick trip to home depot and picked up a 4x4 (which i will refrain from my rant about how a 4x4 is not 4 but really 3 1/2...which makes my dad explain it to me everytime but still drives me nutso)
the 6 foot piece cost $8.50...
and i'm able to get 3 sets...so pretty cost efficient!
i marked it where i wanted it cut...


i had a strong man (the husband) cut the wood into big blocks of all different sizes...but home depot could cut it just as easily.



i have a big one and two shorter ones for each set....


then i mixed some pumpkin orange and nutmeg brown to get a more subdued orange and started painting...


then i hopped on my cameo and designed some fall words....


the give and time are smiley monster....harvest is cursive standard , thanks is callie hand and autumn is windsong....in case anyone was wondering.....


 then i cut and adhere....

after the pumpkins were painted..i added a little distressing...i used an ink pad for a few and sanded a few


the tops i used some of these....(found at joanns)


 and i had a couple knobs that got some spray paint....


and just hot glued them on...


then you can add ribbons or any embellishment you want!




my kids totally want to make one a jack-o-lantern..so i might flip one set around and make it a halloween side....

 you wrap it up and give it as a gift!


thanks so much for having me! you can visit me at any of these places.....(but honestly..i'm at pinterest the most!)

These are so cheap, easy and cute to make - my kind of craft! I love the idea of having a jack-o-lantern on the back as well!! Darling!
