A Simple DIY Pumpkin Painting

I wanted to share a simple inexpensive pumpkin painting that I DIY’ed a couple of weeks ago. Fall wood signs are still really popular but I can’t always afford them or some of them that I like are no longer available. I had some 2×2 boards from a previous project that I was no longer using so I re-purposed one into this DIY Pumpkin Painting.



This pumpkin painting by Holly Hocks for Liz Marie was my starting point. I painted the wood piece brown and then used several neutral whites and light tans and browns and just made my own version of a pumpkin by creating curves and highlighting with several layers of colors. It’s not perfect but I love that about it. Things don’t always have to be perfect to be beautiful. My hubby then cut some 1×2’s for me to trim out the board and then stained them.


I stacked my large mirror with it and the smaller square fall sign to give it some dimension as well as adding lots of faux pumpkins and fall stems in muted fall colors.  The lantern and candlesticks on each side anchor it all together.

I hope this inspires you to look around and find things you have at home to re-use and repurpose to create a one of a kind decor. It doesn’t always have to be fancy or new to create something beautiful!
