1. Wood Block Pumpkins
This DIY takes just a few minutes! All you need is some wood blocks (you can get wood block scraps for free at a home improvement store like The Home Depot or Lowe’s – just ask), orange paint, green ribbon, and nails.
Note: You can swap out the green ribbon for raffia or burlap ribbon and swap out the nails with a small, thick twig, and hot glue gun it to the top as your pumpkin stem.
Make several and have yourself a pumpkin patch!

5. Pumpkin Luminaries
Lighten up the night with these simple “jack-‘o-lights.” You will need clean glass baby food jars, paintbrushes, tea lights, orange tissue paper, black tissue paper, and Mod Podge (glue).
To get the orange and black tissue paper to stick smoothly to the jar, apply Mod Podge with a paintbrush to the jar and then apply the orange tissue paper. Smooth the tissue paper all around so that it is flush. Once it is dry, do the same process, but only enough Mod Podge to stick the black tissue paper to the jar. Drop in your tea light and light up the night!
