Rose and I had this wonderful idea to make these fall inspired leaf and pumpkin wall hooks. The first struggle we had to figure out was how to attach a hook to the leaf and pumpkin. Once we decided we could cement/plaster it onto the back of the leaf and pumpkin it was smooth sailing…
Until we suddenly realized neither of us could nail or drill holes into our nice, clean walls at our homes least we want to endure the wrath of our moms. Desperately missing apartment living we had to come up with someway to actually take pictures of said leak and pumpkin wall hooks without ruining any walls.
Rose thought that we might be able to jerry-rig them to a doorway, but since they are meant to hold something heavy this would not do. I poked around my basement a little bit to see if maybe there was an old bookshelf we might be able to resurrect and fake as a wall.
No such luck, until I turned a dusty spider filled corner and found this giant piece of plywood. Cue light bulb and dancing girl emoji – we could definitely drill into the plywood and it was big enough to look like a wall. Woo! A couple of wood-stain intoxicated hours later and I had the whole piece of wood dyed and ready to go.
Can you tell that this wasn’t a real wall? Thought I might share a little behind the scenes thought process for you all.
