pumpkin art

Here is our post we shared over at The Celebration Shoppe last week in case you missed it.

Pumpkin Art

  • frame of your choice (we used an 8x10 oval from Hobby Lobby and also an older frame we already had with three 4x6 openings)
  • styrofoam pumpkins (bought ours at Hobby Lobby)
  • patterned paper (bought at Hobby Lobby too)
  • sharp chef's knife
  • glue gun

How to:

  • Place the patterned paper in your frame. You can leave the glass where it is or move it behind the paper.
  • Cut your pumpkin in half, but behind the stem. With the styrofoam pumpkins, you should be able to push the knife straight through.
  • Hot glue the pumpkin onto the glass or onto the paper.

that's it!!
three simple steps and you're done.

We originally got the inspiration for this project here at the Made with Love and Glue blog.

and then she went and did this!!  I think I squealed when I saw these framed crows. :)
Rachel shows you how here.

  4. Yeah! I've have been looking for this post. I was inspired by this as well and came up with my own twist on it. I love the pumpkin for fall decor and I'm still searching for the right frame to do one in. But for now I did a spookier version with a skull here:

    Thank for the inspiration!

  5. I love these! I had to repost the idea on my blog. Thanks for such a cute idea!

  6. Stumbled across your blog and love all the craftiness. Just wondering what the candy corn blocks say. I can read what's on the yellow and orange colors, but not the white. Thanks.

    We are all from Vegas and live in the southern part of town. Just outside of Southern Highlands. It would be sooo cool if we were in each others backyard!
