If you’ve followed me for a few Halloween’s then you know that I heart craft pumpkins! When I say “craft pumpkin”, I’m talking about the ones you can buy at Michael’s or other craft stores that come in a variety of colors, are carvable and hollow on the inside. Here are links to some of the craft pumpkins I have carved or otherwise used for decoration. I’ve also included one by a guest poster that is AWESOME! I hope you enjoy them!
Monogrammed Craft Pumpkin
I get this out every year! I created the “D” template using the Cricut Mini Monograms cartridge. Here’s the link to the post explaining how I made it.
Vinyl Decorated Pumpkin
Here’s a vinyl decorated pumpkin I created. Here’s a link to that post for more info.
Decoupaged Craft Pumpkin by Guest Christina K.
Christina uses an orange foam pumpkin, but you might also try a craft pumpkin in white. Then you could skip the spray painting step.
These are so beautiful!! Here’s a link to the post so you can make them too.
Craft Pumpkin for Floral Display
This one is pretty simple. I used this Heat Knife to cut a hole in the top. Then I plopped my fake flowers into it!
My First Craft Pumpkin Carvings – From Real Pumpkin Templates
These are the first craft pumpkins I carved back in 2007. I used templates from a pumpkin carving book, laid them directly onto the pumpkin and carved straight through the paper. I used one of those little punch things that came with a pumpkin kit for real pumpkins. It took forever. That’s when I realized a heat tool would help soooo much!
In the pumpkin below you can see I haven’t removed the paper template completely from the pumpkin yet.
I hope you go buy a craft pumpkin and have some good (seedless) Fall fun!
