Easy Pumpkin Halloween Decorations

Pumpkin Halloween decoration

I love Autumn colours for crating with. Pumpkins are my favourite motif for Autumn and Halloween as they are great for children and not too scary. We knew we wanted to make some Pumpkin decorations to go around the house and just needed a few extra materials, when this lovely box of goodies from CraftMerrily arrived.

While the girls had an explore of the materials I set up some materials for them to make Pumpkin door hangers.

I gave them:

  • orange cupcake cases
  • green and black ribbon
  • black craft foam shapes
  • googly eyes
  • black pom poms
  • Bostik glue dots

I left the pattern completely up to the girls. They always have their own ideas about what to do anyway.

The glue dots helped to stick things on and made this much less messy. It is also easier to position things on.

Halloween crafting

The pumpkin faces turned out so cute.

We used a strip of ribbon as the stalk folded in half to be a hanger. They are a fun decoration for a door or hanging from the mantelpiece and would also make a good Halloween card.

Of course as always the girls had their own ideas. Instead of making a pumpkin Rose found silver cupcake cases and made an Olaf snowman.
