Check out this post and learn how to create a Rustic Pumpkin Stand for your home this fall!  |

Hello everyone!  I'm so excited for you to be here today and join in the first ever Home Depot Virtual Workshop Party.  I was on cloud nine when Kelly from Live Laugh Rowe invited me to join in with her and an amazing group of bloggers.  All 24 of us were asked to create the same project, a rustic pumpkin stand, but style it in our own way for a given room of the house.  The links to everyone's creative take on the pumpkin appear at the end of this post.  The five of us in Kelly's group had the kitchen as our room to use the Rustic Pumpkin Stand.

Check out this post to see five fabulous Rustic Pumpkin Stands for the Kitchen.  Created in collaboration with The Home Depot. |

Going into the fall season, I always want to bake more.  Cookies....pies....cakes.  There are so many delicious flavors we associate with the autumn like apples, pumpkin, and cinnamon that baking just seems like a natural thing to do.  It is nice to have your most needed supplies close at hand for when the baking urge strikes.  This rustic pumpkin stand is perfect for creating a little baking station in your kitchen.

This DIY Rustic Pumpkin Stand was created from a tutorial from The Home Depot.  Visit this post and see how to use it for creating a baking station in your kitchen this fall.  |

When I originally learned what our project was going to be for today's virtual party, I got a little nervous.  Power tools, building, and me aren't normally a pretty combination.  But seriously, guys, this was the easiest project ever.  There was actually no problems which is rare for me with any DIY!

Using the instructions provided on The Home Depot's Website, I cut my cedar fence pickets and 1x2  to the appropriate sizes.

The pieces were glued and stapled together and then I cut the piece into a pumpkin shape using a jig saw.

To make the rustic pumpkin stand a little more my style, I painted the entire thing a creamy white color.  Then I added decorative painting with craft paint to make the pumpkin look a little more real.

 I added a "vine" to the top with some paper covered wire.  (It was the base of a berry garland I used in a project a few weeks ago.)  A sprig of dried green oak leaves were tucked into the vine.

The box on the front of the pumpkin stand is the perfect place to store some glass canisters filled with baking must-haves like flour, sugar, and brown sugar.  It is also wide enough to tuck in some cooling racks, muffin tins, and wooden spoons.

Use mismatched glass canisters from the thrift store to store your baking necessities like flour and sugar.  |

There are so many ways to use this Rustic Pumpkin Stand.  Imagine it filled with plants, candy, magazines, or other home-related items.  The best part of this project is that really is something that any of you can handle making.  The instructions are really clear and have pictures to accompany every step.  It is something that can be completely customized to fit with your needs and style.  There are actually signups going on now for an upcoming Workshop to build this pumpkin!  You can go here to reserve a space.
