Bead Board Pumpkin

I went to the Wood Connection the other day here in Salt Lake and saw the most adorable fall stuff.  I just had to make one of their bead board pumpkins.  I picked up the kit and put it together that same day.

The bead board was actually separate.

I painted the bead board Heritage Brick.

Gave it a good sanding.

Then I painted the pumpkin stem Mississippi Mud.

And the rest of the pumpkin Burnt Orange.

I sanded the edges of the pumpkin and then attached the bead board with some liquid nails.  I also added a little raffia and ribbon and was done.

Now it's ready for display.

Now since Saturday is my birthday I thought it would be fun to make another one and give it away to one of you lucky people.

Since this pumpkin is pretty tall - about 12 inches and a little chunky -  I will only ship within the U.S.   So if you want it, just follow along, or if you already do, just let me know and leave me a comment.  I will pick a winner next Thursday, Sept 29.
