Shadow Box Pumpkins

Last year, I made a SHADOW BOX SNOWMAN found HERE. These pumpkins are taken from that idea...

Supply List

1x4 cut in half
(4) 8.5" square mitered pieces- bottom box
(4) 6.5" square mitered pieces- middle box
(4) 4.5" square mitered pieces- top box
pumpkin stems- mine are from a tree branch

Lets get started...
1.Cut
2.Nail together to form each box.
3.Cut stems for each box.
Here are the boxes before painting.
4.Paint a coat of black on each box (optional).
5.Once the black is dry, paint a coat of orange on each box. Then wait for the orange to dry, then dis-stress the each side by sanding the edges and corners.
6. Hot glue the stems onto each box.
Finished!

Now comes the fun part... Displaying!
They can be stacked... or not.
I hung some wooden stars off two of the stems to add some cuteness...

Happy Halloween!

Seriously! Where do you come up with these ideas! Do you lay awake all night in bed thinking up these creative things. Even Rick says "wow that's one talented girl." And props to your muscles behind the scene that does your cutting for you. You make a good team. Keep creating fun things for me to covet!

I had shadows boxes as a little girl. I wish I still had them now.
This has inspired me to build some ( well hubby too!)
