We’ll be the first to admit that we are completely obsessed with seasonal crafting. There’s just something about keeping up with the changes in weather and the holidays of the year in terms of the kinds of things we’re making and the kinds of decor we put out around our house that makes us feel very accomplished! Now that fall has arrived for this year, we’re finding ourselves itching to start doing some pumpkin themed decor crafts since, if you ask us, those are one of the very best parts of fall!
If you’re feeling just as eager as we are, if not more, to learn how to make a few new kinds of pumpkin themed decor, check out this list of 15 awesome ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration and guidance.
1. DIY pumpkin jars
We’ve done a lot of different kinds of crafting over the years and there are all different techniques and kinds that we really enjoy, but something about mason jar crafting has always made it one of our very favourite things to do! We’re sure it’ll come as no surprise, then, that we totally adored this tutorial from The 36th Avenue that teaches you how to paint and embellish jars of all different sizes to look like adorable pumpkins that are perfect for setting on your side table or mantel.
2. Pumpkin succulent harvest centrepiece
Are you actually such a big pumpkin lover because you’re a total green thumb who just really loves plants of all kinds? Well, what if we told you that you could use your pumpkins to make an even greener display than they already are by themselves? Check out how this short, sweet tutorial from Simply Happenstance outlines the process of cutting out the pumpkin’s top and turning it into a succulent centrepiece that’s perfect for fall and harvest.
3. Cute woodland animal pumpkins
If you’re going to go all out decorating a pumpkin, whether it’s real or fake, would you actually rather do something that you kids might get a kick out of and be able to join in on? In that case, we’d absolutely suggest taking a look at how Simple As That turned theirs into adorable little woodland animals! All you need is some paint, scissors, glue, paper, and felt. Their tutorial shows you how to make a raccoon, a fox, and an owl, but you can bounce off those ideas and create whatever kind of critter you please.
4. Yarn wrapped pumpkins
In your household, are you all already total yarn enthusiasts with a big stash and lots of scrap yarn at the ready at all times thanks to how often you knit and crochet? Then we have a strong feeling you’re going to get a real kick out of the way Two Shades of Pink made these extremely creative yarn wrapped tutorials! We really admire they way they outlined several different ways to cover your pumpkins with yarn using just glue, rather than just one style.
