Paint the Pumpkins
Start by painting the 2x4 blocks. When they've dried, sand the edges to create a shabby chic look.
Make and Apply Wash
First mix up a brown wash: Add a squirt of dark brown paint to about 1/2 cup of water. Apply wash with a rag or sponge brush by brushing it on and then wiping the excess off with a dry rag or paper towel.
Create and Attach Stems
Use large pruners to trim your branch into 3 pieces, creating stems for the pumpkins. Put a very large dab of hot glue right where you want the stem, then push the stem down into it.
