Faux Quilted Pallet Pumpkins with Ann Butler Designs

Sharing is caring!

I am not a traditional quilter or paper crafter, so I have created Faux Quilted Pallet Pumpkins with Ann Butler Designs line of quilt inspired stamps from Unity Stamp Company.  Ann’s stamps come in a wide variety of sizes, shapes, and patterns, but today I am using triangles in a star pattern and rails to create a striped pattern.  Red rubber is perfect for stamping on uneven surfaces like the wooden pallet pumpkins.  I love how the modern pumpkin shapes blend with the traditional quilting patterns to create contemporary home decor!

Here’s what you need to make Stamped Pumpkins:

The lightweight, low-profile BrightPad makes crafting easier while reducing eye strain.

Here’s how to create Faux Quilted Pumpkins:

STEP ONE

Base Coat wooden pumpkins with Burnt Orange and Canyon Orange, then let dry and apply a second coat if necessary.

STEP TWO

On a large acrylic stamp block build a traditional star quilt pattern using the 1″ triangle from the Faux Quilting Stamp Sets.  Load the pattern with Canyon Ink and then stamp off on a scrap of paper to ensure you are pleased with the design.

Stamp star quilt pattern along the centerline of the pallet pumpkin, making sure that the points of the triangles all line-up.  The great thing about these stamps is that there is no edge, so the patterns line up seamlessly with no blank space.

Because I felt the design was incomplete, place 1″ Picnic Stamp on the acrylic block, load with Canyon Ink and stamp in the center of each star pattern repeat.  Stamp 1″ Double Diamond in the center of each pattern match.

STEP THREE

Place Background Basics on the acrylic block, load with Canyon Ink and stamp a different pattern on each section of the wooden pallet pumpkin.  I attempted to stamp Tangarine Ink on the Burnt Orange paint but it did not have enough contrast, so I switched things up!  Because crafting is organic and not an exact science, you have to be able to roll with your materials to create the perfect finished project.

STEP FOUR

Once the ink has dried, paint the base, stems and recessed channels between the pallet planks with Dark Chocolate.  Use the #2 round brush for the detailed painting and the 3/4″ wash brush for the larger areas.

STEP FIVE

Place four of the 1″ squares from the Faux Quilting Stamp Sets onto a large acrylic block.  Load with Limelight Ink and then stamp several times on green cardstock.  Repeat with Evergreen Ink and Depp Woods Ink.

Trace a leaf (either real or faux) on the stamped cardstock and cut out with scissors.  Cut four different types of ribbon in 20″ lengths and tie in a bow around the stems of the pallet pumpkins.  Trim any long ribbon tails with scissors.  Tuck the stem of the leaf into the back of the ribbon.

I hope you have enjoyed my Faux Quilted Pallet Pumpkins and you will use my project as a jumping-off point to stamp on a fun wooden surface!  Look for flat surfaces like pallets, trays, and picture frames in your local craft stores and add some faux quilted charm!

    I think I am missing something here. This seems to be an incredibly expensive craft project.

      One can obtain the same results with just one of the Faux Quilted stamp sets and the stamp sets are so versatile. 🙂
