5 Fall Decor Projects Using Craft Pumpkins

Hello friends! Happy Monday! Well it’s almost October, so I thought I’d share some fun and easy home decor craft projects I’ve recently found on Pinterest.  The best part about these crafts is that they use plastic craft pumpkins from Michael’s or Hobby Lobby, so you make them once and can use them for years afterwards!

Washi Tape Pumpkins

This is such a cute idea! And with all of the varieties of washi tape available, the possibilities are endless!

I love the black and white look of these pumpkins, but they can be done in any colour!

Pumpkin Vase

Cutting the top off a craft pumpkin opens the door to using it as a vase.  This makes a beautiful table centerpiece! You can leave the pumpkin as is, or spray paint it. Maybe a copper pumpkin?

Chevron Pumpkins

These cute pumpkins are made by simply laying down some painter’s tape, painting the entire pumpkin, then peeling the tape away to reveal your stripes! This would look cute as horizontal stripes as well!

Decoupage Photo Pumpkins

What a cute way to mark Baby’s first Thanksgiving or Halloween! This can be done with the entire family’s pictures too! The dog, cat, everyone! A great way to add a personal touch to your home’s fall decorations 🙂

Glitter Pumpkins

And of course, a craft project roundup is simply not complete without a glitter option 😉  I really like how these pumpkins are not entirely glitter, but look like they were dipped in glitter. Keeping part of the original pumpkin visible allows the pumpkins to look glamorous without being overdone. I also adore the polka dots!!

The white and gold combo is very elegant looking, while still having that autumn vibe.

So that’s all for now, guys! I hope you’ve been inspired to whip up some of your own craft pumpkin treasures. Till next time, keep crating!
