You guys! How cute is this printable! Seriously, you just need to download, print, and pop in a frame, tuck a few pumpkins around it and maybe some fall leaves and how cute would this be on your kitchen counter!
I couldn’t resist taking it a step further when I saw these pumpkin signs at Dollar Tree. I knew once I saw it that I needed to use this pumpkin pie printable on it!
A few weeks ago I shared on my Instagram page a cute platter that looked like faux wood and the center had an adorable pumpkin patch picture from that I took from a calendar that I got at Dollar Tree. It inspired me to make a faux wood looking pumpkin cutting board. Of course it’s really not a cutting board, but I tried to make it look like one that I could hang in my kitchen rod that I love to style seasonally.
While the pumpkin would look nice just painted, I looks even cuter with the pumpkin pie printable on it, don’t you think?
How To Make the Pumpkin
To make, I simply painted the back of the sign a few coats of FolkArt chalk paint in the color white adirondack. Once it was covered, it was time to have fun.
First, I print the printable on cardstock an cut it down. Then I attach it to the center of my sign using just a glue stick.
Next, I dry brush FolkArt paint in the color Barn Wood using long strokes, continuing to apply layers until I get that “wood grain” look. I also go in lightly with a dry brush applying FolkArt antique wax for more depth and color. Once I get the desired look I seal it with some Mod Podge.
To complete the look I wrap the stem of the pumpkin with some twine (also from Dollar Tree) and some ribbon (I love the ribbon on my found in the fall section at Walmart). Some cinnamon sticks attach to this would be cute too.
I took the twine to reattach to hang it, or you could use wood filler if you wanted to to fill the holes if you prefer displaying this on a plate stand.
I hung mine on my kitchen rod at the end of my counter that I love to decorate seasonally.
Whether you download this printable to make the pumpkin or to tuck in a frame I hope you enjoy this printable!
You can catch the how to video on Instagram!
Recommend printing on cardstock. If you print on 8.5×11 paper, you will need to cut it down to fit an 8×10 frame. Try printing this on ivory or kraft cardstock too!
