How to Make 4x4 Wood Pumpkins


  • 4x4 pieces of wood
  • Saw
  • Orange and green spray paints
  • Tree branch
  • Wire
  • Raffia
  • Hot glue gun


I got my 4x4 wood on clearance at a home improvement store. A full piece of 4x4 wood is actually pretty expensive, so whenever I see these in the clearance section, I always get them. These two were $.51 each.

Using my miter saw, I cut the 4x4 to the sizes that I wanted. 12”, 8” and 4.5”.

I then put a couple coats of spray paint on them.

For the stems, I used a cut up branch, spray painted green wire, and raffia.

I glued the stems, wire, and raffia onto the wood using a glue gun.

You could easily add paper or glitter to the pumpkins to dress them up a little, too. I just went with something simple.
