As we “Give Thanks” this Holiday Season and look forward to precious time with our friends and family, we like to display our gratitude. We made our pumpkins from RevolutionPly® panels. Just as we did with our Halloween pumpkins, we traced the pumpkin shape onto the RevolutionPly® panel then used a jigsaw to cut out the shape. After lightly sanding the edges, a single coat of paint was applied to the primed side of the panel. We then used mod podge to affix our “Give Thanks” letters. We freehand drew the leaf and vine and painted them. Don’t forget to let the kiddos help with this project! Once you have the shapes cut out they can paint and decorate their own pumpkin.
There are so many ways to get creative with your pumpkins and they can be used year after year.
Supplies you’ll need for this simple, fun project:
Paint – we used orange, green, and black – we bought the sample size paint from our local home improvement store
Small paintbrush or foam brush
Adhesive to attach the garden stake to the back of your pumpkin
Happy Thanksgiving from the Patriot Timber Family!
