Easy Pumpkin Refrigerator Magnets

Today I'm doing a fun extension of a project I showed you a few weeks ago. If you're getting ready for Fall or even thinking about getting ready for Fall, you're going to love this easy and inexpensive pumpkin project.

I began with the tumbling blocks from the Dollar Tree. 

These blocks are like the Jenga game but a little smaller.

If you've been following along you know that I made these adorable little distressed pumpkins with them. 

All the supplies for this project are available at the dollar store, Dollar Tree to be exact. 

I started like my other project stacking the blocks, first 3, then 2, then the last top one.

I used hot glue to attach the blocks. 

For this project I will only be stacking the 6 blocks, the back will remain flat. 

Next, I painted the pumpkins, one orange and one off-white using craft paint

I stuck my finger in brown craft paint and rubbed it on the edges of the pumpkin to resemble distressing. 

A little messy but it did the trick!

I added a piece of vintage clothespin for the stem with a little bit of Spanish moss and some pip berries for the tendril using hot glue.

On the back of the pumpkins I hot glued on 2 strong magnets

If your refrigerator is not magnetic or you don't like to put magnets on your stainless steel, here is another idea...

I hot glued an antiqued clothespin to the back of one of the pumpkins and it is now a great clip for holding papers and notes on the desk.
