Pumpkin Crafts

Pumpkins are my favorite things to decorate with during fall and Halloween. You can do so much with them and I think they are super cute. Here are two crafts that are quick, easy, and you can get the kids to help out with.

Pizza Pan Pumpkin

How cute is this little pumpkin guy?! This would be a cute idea not only for your door, but also for a craft at a kids Halloween party. Plus, if you use your imagination you can turn this pizza pan into so many things! A witch, a skeleton head, etc.

What you will need:

Pizza pan

Googly eyes

Green burlap

Orange paint

Black paint

Black sharpie

Glue

Scissors

Floral wire

Wire cutters

To make this super easy I used orange spray paint for the base. Once it dried I added the eyes, used the sharpie to make the lines of the pumpkin and the black paint for the nose and mouth. I let all that dry before I glued on the burlap for the stem and leaves. I wrapped floral wire around a pencil to create the curl at the top. You can add a hook to the back to hang on the door or just prop it up like I did mine.

Mason Jar Pumpkin

What you need:

22 mason jar bands

Orange spray paint

Cinnamon sticks

Floral wire

Wire cutters

Glue

Spray paint the inside and outside of the bands and make sure they dry completely. Sting the bands onto the floral wire and create the body of the pumpkin. Once you have it where you like it, twist the floral wire together. Insert the cinnamon sticks into the center to create the stem, and glue in place.

You can get creative with this and use different colors, you could cover the outside of the bands with ribbon or jewels. The possibilities are endless!

Stephanie Sanders is a Georgia girl now living in Pennsylvania with her husband and their two crazy kids. Thanks to Twilight, she reads as much as she can - her books are like her babies (and don't even think about touching her signed paperbacks)! Even though she has a lot of book boyfriends, her hubby will always be her king (She doesn't care that his name is Jacob even though she's Team Edward). When she's not curled up with a good book and a coffee she enjoys shopping, working out, crafting, music, and playing in makeup. Chocolate won't last long when she's around it, and good luck if you're in a car with her...she'll sing every song that plays!
