Scroll Saw Pumkin Decor

I have been busting at the seams to talk about this scroll saw.  We scored it on Craigslist a few weeks ago for a steal of a price.  This was after months of contemplation and research on which saw to buy, whether to buy new, and all that fun stuff.  We went used, got a drill press thrown in, and spent a total of $100!  The saw and the press both work great.  This is the first project I have completed with my new toys.  It was super simple.  If you don’t have a scroll saw, just pick up 3 wooden ovals at your local craft store, and you will be making this cute pumpkin decor in no time.

*NOTE:  After Mod Podge dried, I sanded edges of chevron background and applied 2 coats of Mod Podge over entire surface.  To adhere pumpkin to background, I used velcro strips.  That way I can change it out for the different holidays.

  1. Love this! The Chevron pattern in the background is just awesome too!

  2. It’s SO cute!! You got a great deal on your “toys.” That’s awesome! I love that you used velcro too. What a clever idea! Thanks for sharing your tutorial on your fabulous project! :)

  3. What a great project! And I love that you can switch out the motif for different holidays too – smart idea! (And congrats on your new toys!)

  4. Awesome job. The chevron and pumpkin go so well together. My weekly linky party–One Creative Weekend–has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit “One Creative Weekend” on (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.) There are two categories—one for Halloween and one for everything else.


  1. […] “canvas” for my background came from this chevron pumpkin piece I showed you in the fall.  It is composed of pallet […]
