Reclaimed wood "Hello Pumpkin" sign

Our neighbor recently replaced their wooden fence with a stone one, so now I have all of this old wood to try out projects with. One of my favorite lately is this reclaimed wood "Hello Pumpkin" sign that I made:
Reclaimed wood "Hello Pumpkin" sign

I free-handed a pumpkin on the wood and used a jig saw to cut it out.

Part of the wood had started to split so I reinforced it on the back with a thin piece of wood. I used a scrap of wood and screwed it on the back for the stem. I lightly sanded the pieces of wood, but wanted some of the grooves/ridges for character.

I painted the pumpkin orange, then added dark orange and light orange.

Then I free-handed the letters "hello pumpkin".

I sprayed the whole thing with clear spray paint to protect it and stapled rope to the back to hang it up.

Voila!

Thank you to this pin and this pin for inspiration! I'm linking up to What I Made Monday, Domestically SpeakingAll About Home Link Party, Project Inspired Link Party,
