With fall comes decorating with pumpkins. This is a very easy, quick pumpkin to make from scrap 2 by 4's.
Total Time: 1 hour

- Cut four pieces of wood from 2 by 4"s. The two middle pieces should be the same height and the two smaller pieces, on the ends, should be the same height. Make it however small or big you want your pumpkin to be. Glue the pieces together with wood glue and attach a clamp to hold in place until dry. Remove clamps. Drill hole on top middle two pieces with a diameter the size of the piece of tree branch you will be using for the "stem" of the pumpkin.
