Happy Fall Ya’ll! Whats more fall then a big orange pumpkin? So today I have made this adorable wooden sign! Now I am in no way a professional but I do have to advise maybe not to try and tackle this adorable sign unless you are more experienced cutting wood-also make sure you have a few hours to kill just cutting wood! LOL. I love this sign and you can definitely simplify it if you wish. The three letter monogram does make it more difficult but you can alter it of course! I have it tied up with green Burlap ribbon and I LOVE it.

Alright guys, Lets do this!
Draw out your stencil on the wood. Of course put the front side of the wood facing down, and then also face the template down as well The side you cut from can split sometimes while sawing so it’s best to put what will be the front facing down and trace the stencil on the back of the sign.
Drill a hole with a drill and sharp bit in each of the inner pieces of the wood that will be cut out! We do this so we have a hole to stick the saw blade in to start cutting in the center of the piece. I cut out all the center pieces first so I can keep my wood stabalized with the outter wood!
Cut out all of the inner pieces we drilled holes in, then the pumpkin as a whole.
Now its time to sand. You can use an electric sander if you want, but just to be safe because there are so many thin pieces to this cutout I just hand sanded it with a piece of sand paper! Its completely up to you though!
Now its time to paint this lovely sign, I used a cheap bottle of arylic paint in Harvest Orange. I done two coats, and it took the entire bottle. (You can get this bottle of paint at Walmart for 50 Cents)
Next I took a drill and a slightly larger drill bit than the one I used to drill out the holes in the wood, and I am going to cut a hole in the stem of the pumpkin to hang a ribbon through!
Thread your burlap ribbon through the hole, tie a knot at the ends, and then push the knot to the back of the pumpkin out of sight!
Top coat it with some kind of sealer, let it dry, and then hang it out on your door so all your neighbors can be jealous of your beautiful creation!
