I made this little wooden pumpkin from scrap 5/4 decking material and some odd-and-ends screws I had lying around. The idea for it came from something April Wilkerson made about a year ago. She made hers from 1/2” plywood, but I think you could use just about any scraps you have available. Felt good to create!

Nice, this one won’t get soft and turn black if you leave it out too long!

Must be a “Red-Letter Day” for me. I just sold this particular pumpkin on Etsy!
