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!

I am making these as we speak and was wondering what the "vines" were made from and were you got it from. Thanks so much!!

Your brilliant. Thanks for sharing. I found your pumpkins off Pinterest. Just thought I would let you know cause if I had something pinned on Pinterest of my own I would be thrilled.

I'm not seeing the video for distressing the wood for the pumpkins..don't know if it's because I'm on an doesn't run adobe flash ....could someone email it to me? I really want to make these !! My email is thanks in advance

Katie said...

I just found these on Pinterest and LOVE them!! I am going to make some of my own. Did you just sand the edges after you painted them? Also what size is the sign?

What did you use for the pumpkin blocks, looks like 4X4 wood, is it treated wood or not? It didnt look like treated wood. thanks i do want to try this.
