2 x 4 Pumpkins

Ok, so ONE more project. I know, I know. I'm sure you're all sick of seeing the fall/Halloween craft projects I've been doing lately. It's almost like I can't stop. I see a cute idea, and think, hey, I have most of the materials for that. I can DO that! So, I do it. And it is generally pretty easy.

So, here's my latest: the 2x4 pumpkins. I got the idea from this post.

I like how they turned out. You can't tell in the picture very well, but they have grooves down the fronts that give them a more pumpkin-y texture. So, now my front entry looks like this:

I would have to say that it is taking shape! :) Today was pretty cool, around 70F for the high. So, the temps are coming down. Oh, wait. Not really. Tomorrow the high will be in the mid to upper 90s. *shrug* That's ok. I really do love it here. It has been a perfect year so far :)

Well, guess that's it. Matt is home, and when he gets back from his run he'll fix the broken sprinklers in the backyard before dinner. I guess I should get started on that...



  1. that's super cute, Pam! I wish I could be so.....crafty :)

  2. Thanks, Penny. And, I'm not sure about the crafty part. Maybe just have a lot of time on my hands, recently? hmmm?????

  3. That is super cute. I think I can figure out how you made the 2 in the center, but had did you make those adorable ghosts and that cute tree?



  4. Ok so I got a little ahead of myself. After reading farther down the blog I saw your tutorial. Thank you for posting these. I think I am going to try a few of your halloween ideas.
