Dollar Tree Jenga Wood Block Pumpkins

28 September

How to make wood block pumpkins with Dollar Tree Jenga blocks.  These Dollar Tree craft pumpkins are easy to make and can be made to match your fall or Halloween decor.  It's an inexpensive fall wood pumpkin craft that looks adorable on a shelf or in a three tier tray.





Dollar Tree is one of my favorite stores for craft supplies.  While they have a large selection of actual craft supplies, I usually get my inspiration from the other aisles in the store.


Dollar Tree sells mini Jenga blocks called Tumbling Towers.  For only $1, you get 36 wood blocks.  While it's a fun game and all, I think it's even more fun to make Jenga block crafts.


They can be hard to find, but I was able to score a few sets.  I used them for wood pumpkin craft ideas.  Dollar Tree Jenga block pumpkins are so cute, and they are easy to make.

I'm more of a fall decorating person than just decorating for Halloween.  I'd love to decorate just for Halloween, but I don't have a lot of time.  Fall decorations can stay up until Thanksgiving.

Where to Buy Wood for Wood Block Pumpkins


I made Dollar Tree Jenga block pumpkins.  These wood block pumpkins are smaller, but that's what worked in my space.  


If you're making Dollar Tree Jenga block craft ideas, keep in mind that this is a mini game.  If you don't have a Dollar Tree near you, you can find a mini Jenga block style game on Amazon.


For larger wood block pumpkins, you can buy larger blocks to use. You can also find bulk blocks for crafting on Etsy.


How Do You Make Pumpkins out of Jenga Blocks?


It's easy to make wood block pumpkins.  You'll just make a stack with three blocks, then a row of two blocks, and finally one block in the middle. 


Make two of these stacks and then glue them together.  Tada!  You now have Dollar Tree craft pumpkins.





Dollar Tree Wood Pumpkin Crafts Variations

Jenga Block Pumpkin Directions


Step #1


Start by gluing your wood blocks together.  Make size sets of three and six sets of two blocks.  Let dry for 30 minutes.





Step #2


Cut the cork in half with scissors or an X-acto knife while the glue dries.


Step #3


Use the wood glue to glue together two of the sets of three blocks.  Then on either side glue a section of two blocks.  Finally, add a single block on top of the set of two blocks.  





I stood mine up and make sure that they were level on the top.  


Repeat for the other two pumpkins.  Let dry for 30 minutes.


Step #4


Paint each pumpkin with two coats of paint, letting them dry between coats.





Step #5


Use hot glue to attach the corks to the top for the stem.  Then tie a piece of ribbon or lace around the cork.


See how easy it is to make Dollar Tree Jenga block pumpkins?  I set mine on a 3-tier tray.  You can also set them on a shelf or use as a centerpiece.  I'll have more Dollar Tree Jenga block craft ideas, so join the newsletter for updates.
