These wood slice pumpkins could not be easier to make! Most of the supplies you probably already have at home.
I love finding nonconventional supplies for holiday crafts. There are many beautiful things at the stores, but I think having handmade items just adds that extra touch.
Also, I love to bring nature into the house. Especially this time of year. The days are getting shorter, and it’s getting colder.
It’s nice to be reminded of nature, and having some natural decor just makes it feel much more cozy and homey.
How to Make Wood Slice Pumpkins
As I stated before, these wood slice pumpkins could not be easier to make. All the supplies are things you probably have at home. And if you don’t have something, experiment with a different supply that you have readily available!

Wood Slice Pumpkin Tips:
Create the stems
Then, crinkle the bag inward and twist. This will create a long stem.
Cut the stem into three pieces to create the three stems, and so no one stem will be too long.
Where to glue the stem
The stem can either be glued onto the top of the wood tree slice, if there is a spot for it.
Don’t worry if your wood slice isn’t round
If your wood slice isn’t perfectly round or has some other imperfections, no problem! One of mine has a split in it, and I think it makes it even cuter. Pumpkins aren’t perfect, and neither should these wood-slice pumpkins be.
Paint a face, or don’t
These pumpkins are super cute with and without faces. They can be used in fall decor and Halloween decor.
I really loved the faces, so I ended up painting silly faces on all my pumpkins. But they definitely don’t need faces. They are cute without them as well!
What if I don’t have Tree slices?
No problem! You can purchase wood slices on Amazon or at other craft stores. But I also highly recommend asking within your community. I’m sure someone has some and would be willing to give!
Do they all have to be the same size?
No! I think a group of a couple of different sizes would be absolutely adorable. Make this whatever size and style you want. That’s part of the beauty of crafting.
