Hey there! It’s me,
Mario Midsommarflicka aka. Elena!
With Halloween just two weeks and thanksgiving just a month away I thought it’s definitely time to work on pumpkins! Or to create pumpkins out of other things… See below for a collection of fun ideas of which a few you can tackle until Halloween’s here, for sure!
(Please remember to pin the crafts from their original site, thanks!)
These DIY Fall Pumpkin Place Card Holders are so dang adorable! I need to host a thanksgiving dinner, so I have an excuse to make these.
Burlap and Book Page Pumpkins. Two of the biggest craft trends are included, so what’s not to love? ;)
While we’re speaking of book pages. Why not create the whole pumpkin out of it? See the Book Page Pumpkin here.
Or use orange colored and patterened paper and create anothy type of Paper Pumpkins!
This sewn variation of pumpkin looks like a bit more work, but then again it also looks so cute! You can find the whole tutorial including templates for Plush Patchwork Pumpkins here.
You like something textile but sewing the above ones is too much? I feel ya. Let’s just go and buy orange wool and create Yarn Pumpkins. (So easy even your cat can do it. Promises the tutorial!)
Wood is more your favorite material? No problem. I have something four you: This Rustic Wood Pumpkin version…
…or this 2×4 Wood Pumpkin version. You choose! (And this post also shows you how to create a spooky version for Halloween!)
Okay. Now let’s get to the real things. The real pumpkins. While most of them already look fun in their natural state, there’s always something you can do to jazz them up!
Like making a Dripping Paint Pumpkin. (You could also create an upside-down version if you dip your pumpkins in paint!)
Or you use glitter instead of paint. Because glitter! See the tutorial for Glitter Glam Pumpkins here.
And now, to end, do you remember how we originally carved things in our pumpkins? Yeah. This got risen to a whole new level. These are Pumpkins Carved With A Dremel… ?! :)
So far for today. I hope, I could inspire you to create some pumpkins! And I am now happy that I don’t have to write the word pumpkin again. I think, I had to correct it every single time. It feels so strange for me! Altough I’m not sure if our German word Kürbis is any better…
Anyway, until we meet here on DALB again, you can always meet me over at my blog!
