DIY Pumpkin Clock

I love to decorate for Fall and have been looking for inexpensive ways to add more pumpkins to my decor.  While at Haven conference, I received a round piece of wood and a clock kit (from Walnut Hollow) in the Deco Art session.  I had just been using it to stage blog photos, but one day I had an idea that I could cut it into a pumpkin shape and make it into a seasonal clock!

One side of the wood was smooth and the other had a pallet look.  I decided to use the pallet side and used a pencil to draw the pumpkin shape.

I used my jigsaw to cut the design, then sanded the edges with a corner sander.  I found a scrap piece of wood that was the perfect size to use as the stem.

I applied a coat of Folk Art Ultra dye in Orange to the wood pumpkin using a sponge brush.  I wanted to add a bit of bling, so I used Deco Art metallic gold paint for the stem.  I super glued the stem on with DAP's Rapid Fuse All Purpose Glue.

Once everything was dry, I attached the clock kit, using the hole that was already in the wood.  I hung it on my living room wall between two Fall printables.

I am still deciding if I want to add the clock numbers, using a stencil.  What do you think?
