Hi friends! I’m excited to bring you yet another Michaels Makers project today – these Painted Wood Slice Pumpkins! So far we’ve shared three other fun projects, our popular Painted Bushel Baskets, these beautiful DIY Cork Flower Vases and this fun DIY Pencil Holder Teacher Gift! And this month it’s time to get READY FOR FALL and that means all things pumpkin, right? Now these may look familiar…I created this DIY Apple Chalkboard recently with my favorite wood slices, but you didn’t think that I’d just stick with apples right? I love how they look as pumpkins! Let’s break down this easy DIY…

What you’ll need:

  • ArtMinds wooden plaques
  • Orange acrylic paint
  • Brown acrylic paint
  • Coiled floral wire
  • Wire cutters
  • Balsa wood sticks
  • Paint brush
  • Glue gun/glue
  • Saw

And the steps:

  1. Simply paint your wooden plaque with the orange acrylic paint.
  2. While that’s drying, paint the balsa wood sticks with brown acrylic paint.
  3. When the balsa sticks are dry, use a small saw to cut them down to desired length to make a pumpkin “stem.”
  4. Glue the balsa sticks to the back of the wood slice.
  5. Cut a length of coiled floral wire and wrap around balsa sticks.
  6. Curl wire with finger.

    Can you possibly post a SKU# for the plaques? I have searched Michael’s website but not finding them. What size are they approx.?

    I am wondering what was used as the “leaf” on the pumpkin above? That was my fave part and there was no info for that! Thanks so much!

      Haha – good observation, Erin! It’s just an ornament I found at the craft store! If you can’t find a similar one, you could just cut one out of card board or card stock and cover with burlap for the same look. Hope that helps!
