Halloween Countdown: Ten Pumpkin Crafts

Fun Halloween Ideas Because autumn is my favorite time of the year, I’ve picked a pack of pumpkin crafts from http://www.styrofoamcrafts.com. Our pumpkins aren’t just for Halloween decorating; in fact, most of these would look great throughout the fall season.

I know how important it is to pick the “perfect pumpkin,” so the pumpkins offer a lot of variety. Paper, paper clay, mosaics, needlefelting, fabrics – whatever you like to do, there’s a pumpkin for you. You can make substitutions, too, like using scrapbook papers instead of fabric when making the Pumpkin Blocks. Or, try tissue paper and Mod Podge.

We have one for the kiddos, too – the Model Magic Pumpkins (and a bonus spider!), made with an air-dry clay from Crayola.

So, go ahead, harvest a pumpkin or two from our crafty patch. Each photo below links to the project instructions on www.styrofoamcrafts.com.

Now tell me, which of the pumpkins below is your perfect pumpkin?   

Happy crafting!
