Dollar Store Block Pumpkin Wreath

This cute little pumpkin made with dollar store stacking blocks is adorable on its own but when paired with a fall wreath, it looks so cute! The blocks are $1 for a set and this is the second project I've made with them...

Previously, I made used these blocks to make the cutest pumpkins! 

Also fun refrigerator magnets! 

Today, I'm going to use the blocks laying flat and it's a very simple project.

I laid out the blocks in the shape of a pumpkin. 

The blocks will need a base so I'm using a heavy piece of card stock

I glued the blocks to the card stock using white glue. 

When the glue dried, I cut out the pumpkin around the blocks.

Next, I stained the blocks using orange craft paint and a baby wipe.

This technique gives you a nice stained wood effect. 

I added a leaf which some of you may recognize from a Dollar Tree garden sign this summer.

The stem I made from a small piece of corrugated cardboard. 

I twisted it into the shape of a stem and used hot glue to glue it to the pumpkin.

I drilled a couple of holes into the wooden pumpkin and added a curly piece of rebar wire as a hanger. 

Lastly I tied a piece of repurposed placemat sting to the wire

You can also add a little Spanish moss around the stem if you wish. 

The pumpkin is cute enough on its own and you can certainly leave it like this to decorate a small spot.

I am adding this block pumpkin to a fall wreath and I think it looks amazing now.
