Here is another fence picket scraps project. I laid down 5 fence picket scraps and drew a pumpkin on them. I used my jigsaw to cut the shapes out, one picket at a time and then I numbered the backs. Clamping the boards down was helpful in the cutting process. It was hard to hold them and cut them at the same time.
Then I took my orbital sander with the heavy grit pad (I don’t remember the number grit) and sanded all the rough edges.
Then I bought some orange and green outdoor acrylic paint at Joanne’s (the kind with the flip tops). I squirted some into a cup and added water, then applied with a sponge brush. I still have some exterior deck stain so I lightly rubbed all the edges and a bit over the orange and green. It drys pretty quickly.
I then used wood glue and my nail gun to attach strips to the back to hold them together and to the bottom scrap for a stand.
Voila!! How stickin’ cute is that!!
