DIY corrugated pumpkin sign

Hi all! After a long time, I finally got a chance to make a project for the blog. Life is going crazy busy with my baby boy and I am trying to adjust to the new schedule. So, It may a take a while to get to the regular blogging schedule.Coming to the DIY, it is going to be officially fall in a couple of days, so I thought I would share a simple Fall sign project which is perfect for the season as well as for the Halloween. Let's see how.

Fall decor ideas

Materials used:
Cardboard shipping box
Craft knife
Acrylic paint in orange, green and brown
Spray bottle with water
Black cardstock 
Wooden plank for the background(optional)

Step 1: Spray the cardboard box with water. Remove the top layer to get the corrugated effect.Use a sandpaper to remove the bits of cardboard pieces. Refer Textured cardboard letters for detailed description and pictures. 

Step 2: Draw the pumpkin shape on the back of the cardboard and cut the shape with the craft knife.
You can draw the whole pumpkin as such. Since I had a small cardboard box, I drew the stem separately and attached it later using glue.

Step 3: Paint the pumpkin using acrylic paint. Dry brush brown paint on the top of green paint for the stem. Glue the stem to the pumpkin if you have cut it separately. 

Step 4: Cut the letters in black cardstock and attach it to the pumpkin. You can use an electronic cutting machine if you have one or just write the letters on a black cardstock and cut it using scissors. Alternatively, you can also cut creepy eyes and mouth shapes to make it as a Halloween decor. 

How easy was that? Corrugated metal signs are so expensive and this is a perfect way to DIY them which costs almost nothing when compared.Hope you will give them a try.
