halloween 4x4 candle post and $1 store pumkins revamp!



So beleive it or not i made 40 sets of these last week...blah...im crazy! I sold all of them tho, so that was good. The guys at home depot were super nice in helping me cut the 4 by 4's. You could get 5 girls to gether and make these and could make them for 3 to 5 bucks. So cheaP!!! I painted them cheap walmart green, stained and spackled them also with black and white...So adorable it think!



I got these pumpkins from the dollar store and i love them, they are so much bigger than they would normally sell. So they just need a little color. i got some walmart metalic gold and painted the pumpkin. Then i spackled it with black and white. WAL-la! i love them!

these are so cute! Great job.
when you say sets do you mean you made 40 of the set of three? And can I be nosy and ask how much you sold them for? I need to go to the $$$ tree!

I love those green blocks! I have been wanting to do some projects with 4x4's but I can't bring myself to spend the money. I need to just do it!

Think I'm going to have to make a trip to the dollar store...those are cute!
The spackle-ing was a great idea!

(by the way to "the thrifty ba", you can spackle by taking an old toothbrush and just dip the bristles in some paint. Then you use your thumb to run thru the paint covered bristles and it splatter's the paint onto your surface. Super easy and it has great results)...:)

What size board did you use on the top and bottom of the 4 x 4's. I bought a 1 x 6 but it looks to big.

I also bought 1x6 for the base and top but am afraid to put it together as it looks too big as well.

Help!
