DIY Geometric Wooden Pumpkin

Posted by Leah Maria Designs on

This Halloween I wanted to make decor that wouldn't be completely out of place with the rest of my modern decor. So I set out to make this modern geometric scrap wood pumpkin! I love the end result of this build and can't wait to see what you all do with it. Be sure to tag me on Instagram with your creations! @leahmariadesigns

Place one 9” piece across the bottom of the now made hexagon. Mark the edges. Cut out the piece in the middle using your mitre saw. The two remaining pieces will make a full 9” piece when placed on either side of the bottom.
