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.

      Thank you Tanya! I was a little skeptic at first using pastels but it turned out cute ;)

    Oh, it’s SO CUTE. I love the pastel with the yellowish of the pumpkin- so subtle and pretty.

    I love this brilliant artistic idea! The clouds glued to the sides of the pumpkin, really makes the vegetable look like some kind of a special fruit. I’d love to try this with a faux pumpkin, just so that I can preserve it.

      Hello Chelsea! So happy you love my pumpkin with clouds ;) You could even use faux clouds and keep them as decor to last for a long time :)

    What a great idea ! These Pumpkins really look like they have come out of a fairy tale. I would like to try this using various other pastel colors. I am using the Fiskars Cloud Squeeze Punch as a tool to create those cute cloud punches.
