Tips:

  • If crafting with kids you might want to basecoat the pumpkins and let them dry before inviting the kids to craft.
  • Ceramic, plaster and paper mache pumpkins can be used for indoor use but you will want to hot glue the accessories on as toothpicks won’t pierce them.
  • If you are painting real pumpkins be sure to bring them inside a few hours before painting so the pumpkin can dry and warm-up for better paint adhesion. As a bonus painted pumpkins last longer than carved ones.

I hope you enjoyed this Halloween craft! What other pumpkin crafts do you enjoy? Let me know in the comments below!
