Pumpkin Block Place Holder

Pumpkin Block Place HolderI have been having a lot of fun with Fall crafts lately.  Something about the cooler weather has jump started my creativity!   After making these Apple Block Teacher’s Gifts, I knew that they would make cute pumpkins too. These Pumpkin Block Place Holders would be the perfect addition to a Thanksgiving table scape and are easy to make with just a few supplies.

Start with a few wooden alphabet blocks.  I found these at the thrift store but you may have some lying around with the kids toys.

Paint the blocks orange.  I used acrylic paint and a varathane gloss sealer.

Paint a wooden bead {or small drawer pull} green, cut a piece of wire about 3 inches long and curl it around a pencil.  Fasten the wire and wooden stem to the top of the pumpkin block using a hot glue gun.

 Use the wire to hold a tag or card with your guests name on it.  Brilliant right?  You could also give these little pumpkins to guests after the party as a favor and they could use them as a festive photo holder at home!
