I love the wood look that has been trending now for what seems like forever. But one problem is I actually hate working with wood. It requires strength, saw’s and sanders. Saw dust is like sand from the beach, it gets in to everything. So what do you use if you hate wood? Poster board of course. By using poster board you also open this project up to Kids;s and a non messy class room activity.This pumpkin is made using a thin poster board for $1.00. Poster Board Faux Wood Pumpkin.
