Pumpkin Pallet Decor

By: Sherrie Ragsdale

I have always loved to draw and paint but I didn't really throw myself into it until after I had my first son.  I wanted to be a stay at home mom and at the same time be able to decorate the new home we had just purchased. I taught myself how to use power tools and began to build furniture which I would paint and sometimes sell.  What was once a hobby became a new part-time career which I feel so blessed to be able to do.
FolkArt Ultra Dye and a jigsaw transform simple pallets into fun fall pumpkins.

FolkArt ® Ultra Dye™ Colors - Lady Marmalade, 8 oz.
Item #5612
Lady Marmalade is an orange-based shade that absorbs beautifully into natural surfaces. FolkArt Ultra Dye is a creative way to introduce vibrant color to wood and natural fibers. This dye, made with a unique acrylic formula for improved durability, won’t peel or rub off. Use the dye to color block or create an interesting gradient effect. This water-based, non-toxic dye works well with stencils, and it can be paired with Ultra Dye Varnish for added protection.

Item #5617
Apply FolkArt Ultra Dye like a pro with the Ultra Dye Brush Pack. Especially designed for use with Folk Art Ultra Dye, these soft Taklon brushes help ensure smooth application and impressive results. The brushes are great for spreading the dye evenly, as well as for creating a gradient effect. The pack includes: 1-1” Flat Brush, 1-1 ½” Flat Brush, and 2 pairs of plastic gloves. It’s ideal for creating one-of-a-kind Ultra Dye projects that showcase the beauty of natural surfaces.


Other Supplies
1" Tree branch
Wood glue


  1. Disassemble the pallet.  
  2. Find images of pumpkins and enlarge them to achieve a graduating size.
  3. Trace them onto paper.
  4. Cut the three sets of strips that make up each pallet down to size as determined in step 2.
  5. Cut six more pieces and glue to the back of each set of slat that makes up the newly constructed pallets. These will hold the slats together.
  6. Nail to secure. Trace the pumpkins onto each pallet. Make sure that the pieces that are holding slats together will be within the inside lines of each pumpkin. Otherwise, when you go to cut the pumpkins out, it will fall apart.
  7. Using the jigsaw cut out pumpkins.
  8. Brush on Ultra Dye. Allow to dry. For a deeper orange color add a second coat.
