How to Make a Twine Pumpkin Sign

My sign was already pre-sanded, so I decided to add some dry-brushed gray paint to the surface, just to add some dimension and texture to the surface, and to help the twine “pop” a little.

A sanding block worked perfectly to “rough it up” a little bit, to get the look I wanted.

I took a pumpkin image and cut it out. I used painter’s tape to hold it in place on top of the sign.

With a pen, I traced firmly over the pumpkin lines, so that the indentions would show on the wood.

I decided to wrap the twine onto each section of the pumpkin. I used a thin paintbrush and brushed on wood glue to one section of the pumpkin. Then I used the natural twine to trace the outer edge of that section of the pumpkin and worked my way into the center. Once that section is filled, cut the twine.

Then follow the same procedure with the jute twine to do the stem.

You could use any colors you want. A classic orange twine would be adorable too for the pumpkin.
