DIY Pumpkin Decor

Pumpkin decor DIY

Every year before or on the day of Halloween, we look to our creative juices to come up with the next awesome idea to carve into a pumpkin. But what if you don’t want to carve a pumpkin and have an itch to do something more artsy?

Then here are some great ideas of what you can do with your pumpkin:

Set up your work area with magazine tear outs, newspaper and all the tools you’ll need to create your masterpiece.

Sequin flowers all around!

What you’ll need:

White acrylic paint
Glue gun


Paint your pumpkin white and then let dry. Once it’s dry, go over the pumpkin with one more coat of white paint. You’ll need six/seven sequins for each flower, glue on with your glue gun. Be careful: Sequins are small, glue from a glue gun is hot and it can get tricky placing sequins on areas where you’ve set glue. Press the sequin down gently first and pressing with your gun is your safest bet.

Fuzzy Wuzzy Pumpkin

I got mixed reviews with this one. Some people said it looks like this pumpkin just burst into “pretty” coloured warts and some love the fuzzy texture and 3D effect. Halloween decor is meant to be weird, funky and even ugly at some times.

What you’ll need:

Pink acrylic paint
Mini pompoms (Make your own: here)
Glue gun


After you’ve painted your pumpkin with a double coat. Place glue gun glue in place where you’d like to place the pom pom. Press firmly and then let dry.
