I love things made with old book pages. Where did you find the wood blocks? This post gave me so many ideas. They look beautiful and I haven’t seen anything like it. Definitely pinned to try and make.
Hi there Andrea! I cut them out myself using a drop saw but I’m sure you could get your local hardware to cut them for you if you don’t have access to a drop saw. Hope you have fun making some!
Wow I’m impressed. You made the wood blocks with a saw. They look so perfect.
Even with the spooky spiders, these are so pretty…. until you read the scary book pages :). Love the creativity!
Nothing like a good James Patterson book Sara! Thank you for your kind words!
Sam, these are adorable! So creative! I never would have thought that squares could be pumpkins, but you proved me wrong! I love the addition of the book pages and the wood beads! I will keep this in mind when I do a neutral fall decor again! YAY! Pinned!
Thank you so much, Chole! I’m so happy you’ve enjoyed this tutorial! I sure had fun making them!
Your pumpkins are very unique and creative, Sam! Looks awesome! Great thinking outside of the box on these!
Thank you so much, Gail! So glad you like them!
Sam, love the idea a square pumpkin. The old book pages just makes it fun! Thanks for sharing.
So glad you think so Rachelle! Thank you for your kind words!
These are SO cute, Sam! I love using old sheet music as decor and it is perfect on your rustic pumpkins! Pinned! Blessings, Cecilia @My Thrift Store Addiction
I’m so happy you think so Cecilia! They sure were a fun project and am thinking of making some larger ones!
Sam, your pumpkins are fab-u-lous! I love how you fitted a “square peg” into a “round hole” lol! Square pumpkins with those old pages as decor is so creative and clever. Pinned!
Oh, thank you so very much Debbee!! I really enjoyed making them that’s for sure 🙂
Oh my goodness Sam, I LOVE these! Super cute (and fall is my favorite season) Wonderful crafting with you and thanks for sharing!
It’s also been wonderful crafting with you to Chas! Thank you 🙂
Adorable wooden pumpkins! I love anything with book pages! Happy to be crafting with you ♥
Thank you so much, Mary! Been fun crafting with you too!
These are so unique, Sam! I love that they can be used for neutral fall decor then transition to Halloween with the addition of spiders and cobwebs. That’s so cool how you used bookpages with a spooky story. The wooden beads are a nice touch, too. It was fun crafting with you!
Oh my Sam these pumpkins are gorgeous. I love how you can use them for Fall and just add the icky creepy not in my house ever spider to update it for Halloween.
Oh wow !! These are stunning ! Totally loving these pumpkins.
Love the mix of painted wood, beads, and book pages. Your pumpkins are so pretty and unique! Pinned
OMG! I love these book page pumpkins!
You are so talented:)
Have a great week,
