Looking for a festive and unique way to decorate your home for Fall? A lattice pumpkin wall DIY project is the perfect way to add a personal touch to your space. And, the best part is, this lattice pumpkin wall DIY is easy to make! With just a few supplies and some simple instructions, you can create a beautiful wall decoration that will add interest and style to any room.

This pumpkin wall décor project is not only easy to do, but it's also one of a kind and easily adaptable.

What You'll Need:

  • Wood board (I used a 3/4" maple plywood)
  • 1 1/8" x 8' pine wood lattice molding
  • Wood glue
  • Brad nails
  • Wood stain (optional)


  • Jigsaw
  • Brad Nailer

What You'll Do:

1. First thing is to draw an outline of the pumpkin. You can easily free hand it, but I am not the best at free hand, so I used a projector to project a picture of the pumpkin onto my wood board.

2. I then used a jigsaw to cut out the outer edge.

3. From there, I drew the inner edge as well as outlined the horizontal and vertical grids, using the jigsaw to cut. To help the wood from splitting, use tape on top. Masking tape is the best because you can still see your line easily through. For the inner parts of the grid, I drilled a hole in the corner to be able to fit the jigsaw through.

This was the hardest and most challenging part, as it took time and precision. But the next part was the most fun and where the project really comes to life, adding in the trellis.

4. On the backside of the pumpkin, I started by adding the first piece of trellis in the middle, splitting the rectangle diagonally, using wood glue and brad nails to secure it. Once the first piece was secured, I worked my way to the outer edges. To help with spacing, I used a scrap piece of lattice in between each one for my lattice pumpkin wall DIY.

5. Once I finished adding the lattice pieces in one direction, I did the same thing on top for the other direction.
6. The final step is to stain. I would highly recommend staining before attaching all your pieces because trying to stain all the crevices is a doozy. I do it first and make the mistakes so you don't have to.

And that's all there is to it!

Although this projects main focus is a pumpkin, it can easily be adapted to other holidays and seasons. For example, you could make a Tree to turn it into a Christmas decoration. Or, you could do a simple rectangle or circle to add to your home year round. The possibilities are endless!

Let me know if you try it out! Thank you for being here. Mean it!

Hi! I am Andi of The Simply Distressed. I am a mom to two girls, a baby boy and two fur babies. Since having our oldest daughter, I have worked from home as an online high school math teacher. I have always had a love for distressed furniture, taking something old/new and transforming it to my liking. But ever since purchasing our first house and working from home, my love for home projects has grown. I am married to my best friend, who is used to coming home to a different house than he left. I love anything from easy and inexpensive DIY projects to tackling a major renovation…and all the failures and learning lessons along the way.
