Farmhouse Beaded Pumpkin Fall Decor


Farmhouse Beaded Pumpkin Fall Decor

I found several wood pumpkin décor ideas online with great video instructions.

I decided to try it by adding my own spin. I knew I wanted something small to use in one of our guest bathrooms.


I grabbed the following supplies from my stash:

  • Set of 3 - 4-inch wooden embroidery hoops
  • half wood beads
  • Paint - Waverly Chalk Paint - antique wax and ivory
  • Wood cube (1 inch)
  • 3 x 5-inch scrap wood
  • glass candle holder
  • small LED candle
  • berry garland


I only used the inside portion of each embroidery hoop for this décor piece.


To get the pumpkin shape I inserted one of the hoops inside of another, which gives you an X shape. I then inserted the third hoop inside of the previous two hoops. It was a tight fit, so I didn’t think glue was necessary. Moving the hoops ever so gently gives the illusion of a round celestial pumpkin shape.

Once I was happy with the shape, I glued it to a 3 x 5-inch scrap wood base so that the pumpkin décor piece would stand on its own.

I only had thirty (30) of the small half wood beads available. I hot glued five beads to each of the six spindles, spacing them equally around the pumpkin.

When I make this beaded pumpkin again, I will use more half wood beads to give the pumpkin more definition and interest.

At this point I painted the pumpkin with Waverly’s chalk paint in Ivory with a light dry brushing using the antique Wax also from Waverly. I also painted a small wood cube from the Dollar tree using antique wax and then hot glued it to the pumpkin as a stem.

Finally, to decorate my wood pumpkin I added a small, frosted candle holder (also from the Dollar Tree) inside with a battery-operated LED candle with a timer. 

This wood pumpkin décor piece serves as a night light also! 

Lastly, I took a piece of berry garland from another project shaped into a circle and wrapped around the bottom.

I found this project to be lots of fun, super cute, budget friendly and best of all quick to make.

I hate to admit that I lost the photos I'd taken while making this. I didn't realize the syncing between phone and my computer had been disabled. 

I searched for an online video that might be helpful if you’d like to make one yourself.

Crafting My Best Life with Lisa Marie “Brillant Ways to UseDollar Tree Bamboo Hoops” on YouTube is similar to the one I made.

Is this a craft you’d make for your home or as a gift?  Let me know in the comments below.

Until next time …. happy crafting!


  1. Hi Karla! I'm so glad you shared your new website link with me. I'll follow you, if you allow it, so I can keep up with your posts. How sweet is that picture of the grandbabies, although I know they're not babies any longer. You are so clever and talented - I love this project. It's just perfect for October through November although Friday all bets are off. I'm ready to put up my village pieces! {{hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
