DIY Pastel Pumpkins Tutorial

My first pumpkin craft of the season! I think these would look great in a child’s bedroom, and I’m positive my daughter will snag them ;) Please take a look at the tutorial below. This craft was super easy, and the results are pretty. My kind of craft!

  1.  Begin with a clean white pumpkin.
  2. Download the colors sheet I created for this project or use any other pastel paper of your own.
  3. Punch a few “clouds” and use mod-podge to glue them to your pumpkin.
  4. Once all the clouds are glued, apply one layer of matte mod-podge.
  5. Enjoy your creation ;)

What I love the most about this craft is that there is no carving involved. Little ones would enjoy making these pastel pumpkins so much! I think I’ll make a second batch with the kiddos.
