Tree Stump Pumpkin

Many, many years ago my mom bought a tree stump pumpkin that we all loved and secretly coveted. After all those years of wanting, we finally made some tree stump pumpkins out of a fallen tree from a spring storm.

My dad cut several stumps with the chainsaw and he sanded the fronts so they were a little smoother. Then I freehanded this pumpkin with some craft paint. I used my mom's pumpkin as a guide. It looked a little too bright, so we took some watered down black paint and rubbed it over the pumpkin. He looked much better after that! Super easy and super cute!

He's one of my favorite Halloween decorations!!
