Simple pumpkins


I don't remember what site I saw these on, but it was a few weeks ago and they have just stuck in my head as something I would like to do.  And it was soo easy.  I didn't measure it and just had Kevin cut a 2x4 where I had marked it.  Then he drilled a hole in the top of each block to match the stick I cut for stems.  I sanded all three pieces down and rounded the edges a tad.  I painted them and glued the stem into place and let them sit to dry.  I distressed them with watered down black paint and rubbed it on lightly with a rag.  I cut a strip from a remnant and pulled the edges to fray it.  Tied it on and voila!
