Painted Pumpkins // Dollar Store Craft

Hi Friends! You can use real or fake pumpkins for this cute craft! Great for kids and classrooms too. Put them out for decoration this Halloween! This would make a fun activity at a Halloween party too!

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!

  3. I’m a bit behind on my blog reading so I didn’t see this earlier. Great idea. Thanks for the heads up about finding these pumpkins at the Dollar Store. Will be on the look out at the Dollar Tree next August/September – as soon as they have the fall stuff out.
