Making your own pumpkins

I forgot to add this part to the last post

K- for those of you doing these on your own...

Go to Home Depot and buy a 4x4 (it will be 8 feet long)
It will be enough for two pumpkin sets (so 6 pumpkins total)

If you don't have your own saw- then have the nice people at Home Depot 
cut the 4x4 at these lengths:
13 1/2"
15 1/2" 
18 1/2"
That will be exactly half a 4x4.  
Hope this helps!
Also- the stems are just tree branches cut 2-3" long

To see how to distress the wood (all those grooves) see the video in the
previous post.

How to distress your pumpkin blocks and attach stems

Ok- for some reason the recording we made of this turned sideways and we couldn't get it to turn- 
so cock your head and you'll get the point! :)

Also- to attach the stems:

Nail in a small 1 1/2" - 2" finishing nail into the center of the top of your pumpkin
Only about half way

Pull nail back out

Now- turn nail upside down (head first) and hammer back into hole you just made

Now you have a tack of sorts to attach your stem

I put a glob of liquid nails on mine to help secure- but you could use hot glue or wood glue as well

center stem on nail and hammer down carefully

You are done!
