Add these adorable pumpkins to your Halloween décor.  These are a simple way to add some spook but make it blend with the rest of your farmhouse décor seamlessly.  If you love all things rustic, this is definitely the project for you.

Items needed:

  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint 8oz - Relic
  • Americana Decor Chalky Finish Paint 8oz - Everlasting
  • Wood slices (thicker slices will stand better)
  • Paint brush
  • Driftwood pieces
  • Raffia
  • Hot glue and glue gun
  • downloadable PDF pattern


Gather your supplies.

Instruction #1 - wood slice pumpkins

Start by painting one side of the wood slices with the white chalky finish paint.  Allow to dry completely.  I left the bark band around the outer edge unpainted.  I wanted a rustic look and only used one coat of paint.  You can add additional coats if desired.

Print the pumpkin faces, from the downloadable pattern above, on plain copy paper.

Instruction #3 - wood slice pumpkins-002

Cut the faces out and place on top of the wood slice.  Use a ball point pen to trace the face only on top of the white side of your wood slice.  Press hard while tracing.

Instruction #4 - wood slice pumpkins-003

This will leave an indentation in your wood everywhere you trace.

Instruction #5 - wood slice pumpkins-004

Fill the area with the grey chalky finish paint.  Once again, I only used a single coat of paint for a more rustic appearance.

Instruction #6 - wood slice pumpkins-005

Continue with as many pumpkins as you want to make.  Allow the paint to dry completely before continuing.

Instruction #7 - wood slice pumpkins-006

Cut your driftwood pieces into stem sized pieces and use hot glue to secure to the top of each pumpkin.  Tie on some raffia around your stem.

Instruction #8 - wood slice pumpkins-007

Add these wood slice pumpkins to your Halloween décor.  You will love the touch of whimsy these add to any room.  Grab your supplies and start on your own today.

These are so adorable. I have lots of wooden slices I had my husband make this summer from all the trees he took down. Need to make some of these. Hugs, Bev

These are so cute, I love them! Cheap wood slices aren't easy to come by in the craft shops here. I need to find someone with a fallen tree and a chain saw! ;-) Sue #CreateLinkInspire

I love inexpensive ways to add to the home decor especially seasonal. Anything from nature is a gift.

These pumpkins are so cute. The wood slices are pricey in Alberta, but if I get a chance to go home I will grab a few. These are just wonderfully adorable.
