Hello Pebbles Friends! It’s Wendy Sue here today, sharing a really quick and easy (and super cute) framed pumpkin project. I really love sharing little seasonal gifts with my neighbors and friends. Usually I share a treat – but every once in a while, I get a wild hair and want to create something a bit different. I was at a local craft fair recently and noticed all of the cute framed 3-dimensional wood decor. I don’t have a lot of fancy wood-cutting equipment and I can’t paint…but I do have a plethora of random frames and a passion for paper – so here’s what I came up with for my quick little autumn gifts:
This project could easily be whipped up in 15 minutes or less, once the supplies are gathered and set up! And, best of all, it’s so easy that the kids can even help!
Start by cutting a bunch of pumpkin shapes – I used my Silhouette cameo because it makes the process super quick. You could trace and cut the shapes out by hand too. I cut about 18 shapes out of regular cardstock.
Next, for the dimension, stack up the shapes and glue them together. A simple glue stick works great. The more pumpkins you cut, the more dimensional your finished project will be. The top layer will be covered with patterned paper. Don’t forget the stem!
Add stickers, tags, jute…whatever embellishments you’d like to make it personalized.
Now pull out a frame – you can paint, decoupage, or use it just as it is – it’s up to you! Add a piece of patterned paper directly over the glass.
Simply glue your pumpkin to the patterned paper background!
Super easy, and super cute, right?!
If you prefer a Halloween themed pumpkin, simply switch up the products you use! I created this version with papers from the “Trick or Treat” collection:
See, you don’t need wood to create the trendy framed pieces – just fake it with layers of cardstock! If you create a framed pumpkin project, please leave a comment with a link – I’d love to see your version!
