Looking for fun pumpkin project ideas for fall? Instructions for a state pumpkin project, burlap pumpkin and so many more.
You probably have already finished your fall decorating.
I know you.
You’re organized and brilliant and amazing and wonderful.
And you started September 1.
But just in case.
Just in case the leaves are falling and it’s a crisp cool fall day and you had a few minutes here are a few DIY pumpkin project ideas for a lazy fall afternoon.
And just because I’m feeling sassy and all fall decorated up?
I have a question for you.
Why did they let the turkey join the band?
Because he had his own drumsticks. 🙂
11 DIY Pumpkin Project Ideas
1. DIY Twig pumpkin project
This project is all about shopping the backyard.
(total aside: I made this years ago and it’s held up all these years later)
All you really need to make this are some twigs, hot glue and some sort of tray or flat surface.
2. DIY mercury glass pumpkin
One of my all-time favorite pumpkin projects I’ve ever done.
Even if you aren’t about pumpkins—y0u can use the instructions to transform any ordinary glass into mercury glass.
See the mercury glass pumpkin project here.
3. DIY fabric pumpkins with driftwood stems
You can purchase expensive fabric pumpkins.
You can shop your fabric stash and make your own.
4. DIY Silhouette Pumpkins
I love anything with a silhouette.
Especially a pumpkin.
I painted these pumpkins when my children were a lot littler and they are such a fun way to look back on those sweet faces.
5. wood slice pumpkins
I think this project is proof that there’s a pumpkin in everything.
These pumpkins are made from wood slices from a tree that fell at the farmhouse. I have instructions on how to make them along with this rustic pumpkin stand.
See the DIY here.
6. Pumpkin Doormat Art
If you have a doormat that you like—don’t just put it at the door.
Why not make art out of it?
Here’s how I transformed this pumpkin doormat into art.
7. DIY State pumpkin project
I’ve painted tons of pumpkins.
Polka dots and stripes and spiders and numbers.
But my favorite thing I’ve ever painted? The state where I lived.
See the DIY here.
8. Word find pumpkin
This is a fun idea for a centerpiece for a party.
Make pumpkins that double as a game.
See the DIY for these chalkboard word find pumpkins.
9. Woven pumpkin DIY
These pumpkins are so much easier to make than they look.
All you need are a few strings of yarn and some glue.
See the easy pumpkin project here.
9. floral pumpkin DIY
It’s hard to find pumpkins that are a fit for my living room.
So I had to make my own with scrapbook paper.
See the DIY for this floral pumpkin project here.
10. buffalo check pumpkin
We are back to where we started.
With these buffalo check pumpkins.
See how to make your own here.
Pumpkins are one of the easiest and simplest ways to decorate for fall.
Hopefully, now you have a few ideas for all those empty pumpkin spaces in your home.
But before you go?
I have a question.
Why did the farmer have to separate the chicken and the turkey?
He sensed fowl play. 🙂
PS So sorry. I couldn’t resist. 🙂
