I thought it was perfect with my scarecrows...I bought those last year on clearance for $3. I was excited to finally get to use them!

So I started with painting them orange. They each needed two coats of paint.
I don't have the right saw to put the marks in the wood so this is how I did it. I just took a paint scraper and wrapped sand paper around it and followed a line. I also distressed the edges a little. I also painted the stems brown, and distressed them.
Here is the final project! I LOVE them! It was just what I wanted!

The best thing about this project is I already had most everything! The only thing I needed to get was the fabric for the flowers.I have seen these pictures all over blogland! I LOVE them. I couldn't not have them on my board. I think that was the number one thing I loved about this board. The tutorial I used it one of the best. It can be found at My Sparkle. I am thinking after the holiday's I want to make a family saying board!

Here are all my pumpkins and gourds. They we all $1 at....The. Dollar. Store. can you beat that? No! However I wanted them to look a little better! So, I took a little of this (Metallic Craft Paint in Gold) and just brushed it on the raised part of the pumpkin or gourd.
This picture really doesn't do it justice of how much better they look!
Here is how I displayed them. I put some in my trifle dish with...a bow...of course and a couple by it. I love how it turned out.

Here they are all glued together. I used E6000 glue to hold it together! You can't even tell it is glued. I let it set for 24 hours. I am sure you don't have to let it set that long...I just moved on to other projects.
And the finished project....LOVE IT! I filled mine with candy corn and spiders. I tied a bow around to add a little something and this is what I got. For $4 how could you go wrong?!?!?!
MY NEW CHOP SAW!!!!

My mom was in town and gave me this for my birthday...which I won't tell you isn't until April...and together we in a week we used lots of wood...over 50 glue sticks...lots of paper...and many trips to Hobby Lobby. I cannot wait to share the out come of it all! For now thought maybe I will go cute some more wood!!!!!!
