4x4 Pumpkins with Beth

Hello everyone!  This is Beth from Beth's Beauties with another project.  Fall is everywhere we look now.  The leaves are falling, the temperatures are cool and Halloween is right around the corner.  Today I have a project to share with you that has no paper on it whatsoever.  Crazy, right?  Don't worry, I was still able to use my Cricut on it, just not with paper :)  I have seen wooden pumpkins like these a lot.  In person, on the internet with several variations of course.  Here is my take on this popular fall decor.
 I cut 4x4's into three different heights and painted them with an outdoor orange paint.  I didn't know if I wanted them for indoors or outdoors, so I used elements that would be okay outside too.  Then I used a combination of brown, yellow and green paint to add the lines on to make them look more like pumpkins.  The dowel sticks that I used for the stems were a little over an inch in diameter and I used my hot glue gun to wrap them with twine.  I added leaves from a bunch of fake leaves I had in my stash along with some wired berries.  Large brown buttons and a bow of twine finished off each pumpkin.
 I made the sign out of a very thin board that just so happened to be in the garage calling my name for this project :)  The Happy Harvest was cut from tan, olive green, yellow and burgundy vinyl.  The cutting files for the words were from the Thankful Captions set by SVG Attic.  They were a perfect match for this project!

The embellishment on the sign is almost the same as on top of the pumpkins, except I added some brown, green, and yellow rumpled ribbon.  

Then I just couldn't help myself and had to see how they would look in Halloween mode...and they turned out cute that way too! 
I simply slipped the sign off of them and added black vinyl jack-o-lantern faces.  The faces are from the Pumpkin Patch SVG collection at SVG Attic.  The vinyl is removable and it will peel right off once Halloween is over.  I will put the sign back on and these will be gracing my house until Thanksgiving is over!
