3 Creative Pumpkin Projects to Copy This Fall
Because pumpkins like to play dress up, too.
As part of the Made + Remade Blogger Challenge, a few of our favorite crafters went head-to-head in a craft pumpkin decorating challenge. Using only craft pumpkins and items they could find at the craft store, these talented DIYers came up with some seriously creative ideas. Take a look:
Make It: Laura James, assistant editor for HGTV.com and DIYNetwork.com, stayed perfectly on trend with a pair of adorable emoji-style craft pumpkins. To make sure she never gets tired of the look, she attached a few small magnetic strips to her pumpkins. She then added magnets to the back of each facial feature for endless expressions.
Stage It: Bring a traditional harvest look to mod emoji pumpkins with a small hay bale. It's the perfect way to elevate your masterpieces.
Make It: HGTV.com and DIYNetwork.com editor Jackie McGilvray took tiny homes to a whole new level with her charming fairy village. Petite toys, dollhouse accessories and a few finds from her own backyard made this project as easy to make as it is adorable.
Stage It: Don't limit your pumpkins to just the porch; this sweet fairy village looks right at home nestled on a garden walkway or among some greenery.
Make It: Considering she’s a designer for HGTV.com and DIYNetwork.com, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Hannah Slaughter had a few tricks up her sleeve. She transferred an eerie image onto a once-white craft pumpkin for a spooky look that really stands out. To get the look, simply use decoupage glue and a photocopy of your favorite design to attach right onto your pumpkin.
Stage It: Do you really want to spook things up? Decorate your mantel with a mix of antique candlesticks, vintage hardback books, dried flowers and your eerie pumpkin creation.
