Fall Pumpkin 4x4s - Decorating on a Dime
ornament tree and at Halloween I tend to put gourds.
I had a left over 4x4s from another craft, so I decided I would cut 1.5 inch slices off the end of the 4x4 on my husband's miter saw. I have only used this a few times since he bought it so I had to work up a little nerve. So I put on the gorgeous safety glasses he left out for me (why can't they make some that actually fit my small head), plugged in the mighty machine and cut 4 slices of the 4x4. I was grinning from ear to ear after I was done. I ran inside and said to the kids "Look what Mommy just did!" They weren't nearly as excited as I was.
I tied some raffia around the stems and made some curly ques with left over paper covered wire from making the wire pumpkins.
So since I had all the materials on hand, this project cost me nothing.
What do you think? Do you do seasonal decorating?
