Let’s get started!
When I say this is a quick and easy Fall DIY, I mean it! You’re going to start by tracing the shape of the mini pumpkin ornament onto the orange buffalo check fabric, then cutting the fabric to fit.
You can also catch the full video right here on my website for your convenience!
Next, cover the front of the mini pumpkin ornament with a layer of Mod Podge, and apply the fabric carefully on top of the Mod Podge. I like to use a credit card to smooth out the creases and wrinkles.
Stain the Jenga Blocks
While the Mod Podge is drying, you are going to stain the Jenga Blocks with the Apple Barrel burnt umber acrylic paint.
To do this, I wet the wood first, then pour the paint directly onto the blocks and spread it with a baby wipe.
Wetting the wood allows the wood to absorb the paint and get a stained look rather than a painted look. Set the blocks to the side so they can dry.
Make the mini messy bow
To make the mini messy bow, cut tiny slits on the edges of the fabric, and then pull the fabric and rip it into strips. Next, fold each strip in half and lay them parallel with alternating open ends.
I used 4 strips of the polka dot fabric, then pinched the center and secured the bow with a piece of the jute twine.
You could also just wrap another strip of fabric around the center and hot glue it down. Your choice!
Put it all together
All that is left to do is put all the parts together! First, hot glue the mini messy bow to the pumpkin. Next, hot glue 3 Jenga blocks together, then do the other 3.
Finally, hot glue one strip of Jenga blocks to the front of the bottom of the pumpkin and the other strip to the back of the bottom of the pumpkin!
