This pumpkin was super easy to make on my bandsaw and I was able to use short pieces that were going to the scrap pile.
Start with 3 pieces of wood. I used 1x4s here and cut a stencil from a generic pumpkin SVG.
You can find an image of a pumpkin online, and cut it out on paper and use that as a tracer too!
Start cutting each piece separately on bandsaw or scroll saw.
Be sure to use relief cuts on any sharp angles.
Once all of the pieces are cut, we are going to connect and attach from the backside.
Cut the wood pumpkins depending on your pumpkin width. Staple using 1″ staples or brad nails.
Squeeze the boards together while attaching so they don’t move and have huge gaps
Sand the front and edges of pumpkin. Turn the sander on it’s side to get all of the edges smooth.
I used 120 grit.
Now it’s time to paint your favorite gold! I am using Rustoleum Copper Rose. I just did one coat and let dry for a few hours.
All done! I found these small white velvet pumpkins at Hobby Lobby that match perfectly.
