Meet Jack and Jack and Jack

It took me all of three seconds to name this trio. Jack. Such a great name, I’ll use it a couple times. Meet Jack and Jack and Jack! When I was starting these Jack O’Lantern’s, I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with them. I wanted them to be different then the other pumpkin and apples I have done. So I decided that I would make cut out leaves to go along, and that I would add faces that I traced from Cricut’s Pumpkin Carving Cartridge.

I created these Jacks with 2×4’s. One is 6″, one is 8″ and one is 10″.. I also drilled holes to accommodate the twigs that I cut down to size, once they were fitted, I used silicon glue to adhere them inside the holes.

I first cut then, sanded them and gave them a solid base coat with orange acrylic paint. I top coated with another layer of orange, but this time, I added three lines of brown.

I took my 1 inch brush and blended the orange and brown together to create the ribs on a pumpkin.

Once that was done I thinned down some brown paint and splattered the pumpkins with it.

I used Cricut Pumpkin Carving to create three faces, then cut them out. I traced the faces on the pumpkins with a pencil, then painted over the faces with black acrylic.

Once that was done, I cut the leaves from Basswood- a thin wood you can find at your craft store.

I made some stylized leaves, then painted them with green paint. When they were dry I accented with a little green marker and hot glued them to the front of the pumpkin.

To finish, I tied on some strips of green fabric, and splattered the pumpkins with green and brown paint.

    did you put any type of clear coat to protect them for outside?

    • says:

      Hi Stacey, you can coat them with a clear matte spray if you are leaving them in the weather. I wouldn’t use a poly because they yellow over time. I didn’t, because my pieces won’t be in the weather, they are tucked under a porch.
