Age Group: Adult Crafts
Project Type: Fall
Author: Angie Holden

Supplies

  • Scrap wood any that you have on hand
  • Craft paint in white orange, and brown
  • Craft sticks
  • Green burlap
  • Raffia
  • Black buttons
  • Paint brushes
  • Scissors
  • Hot glue and glue gun

Instructions

  • Start on one side and decorate to look like a pumpkin.
  • Paint this side orange with a few inches of white at the top as shown.
  • NOTE: Do not paint the sides as we do not want the orange to be visible on the snowman side of the project.
  • Set those aside to dry.
  • Snip the ends off of some craft sticks with scissors.
  • Give those a coat of brown paint and then allow to dry.
  • Cut the green burlap into a leaf like shape.
  • Once the paint is dry on everything, use hot glue to secure the craft stick stem to the pumpkin.
  • Then add the burlap leaf on top again with hot glue.
  • Tie some raffia into a knot and add that on top of the leaf.
  • Use scissors to trim the raffia so that it does not show around the edges of your pumpkin.
  • Once everything is in place and dry, you can flip your project over.
  • For the snowman side, paint the entire thing in white and allow to dry.
  • Once again, leave the edges unpainted.
  • Paint on an orange nose as shown.
  • Add button eyes and a mouth by using hot glue to secure.
  • Repeat all of these steps as many times as you would like to create as many of these reversible holiday decor items as you want. They are so inexpensive that there is no reason not to create multiple pieces.
