I’ve skipped a couple of weeks of notions thanks to not actually working on Mondays. Such is life. But here were are on the cusp of fall and it’s the perfect time for crafting with or without kids.
There are a ton of great craft tutorials out there with a fall theme, and many, many great roundups of the same. So as to not overwhelm you with too many amazing creations all at once, I’m going to focus on different kinds of fall crafts here for a few weeks, starting with pumpkins today.
Crafts on Sea has an adorable pumpkin suncatcher that’s super easy to pull together with contact paper and tissue paper. (We’ve done this with hearts before, but the pumpkin is a great idea, too!) Or try decorating pumpkin cutouts with washi tape, as on I Heart Crafty Things.
If you have a child who is learning cutting (or even if they already know how) these paper strip pumpkins from Nurture Store are a great craft to try.
Reuse bottle caps for this sweet stamping project making little painted pumpkins, via Crafty Morning. Totally cute and you already have everything you need. Or you could use pool noodles, like they did at Toddler Approved.
Speaking of painting, I also love these pumpkins made with black glue and salt from Mess for Less. Such a fun look, and a bit of a science experiment for the kids, too.
Or try painting rocks like jack o’lanterns, as seen on No Time for Flash Cards. Or make a paper plate into a pumpkin photo prop or decoration like this one shown on Muffin Tin Mom.
If you happen to have any orange socks lying around, these sock pumpkins from Meaningful Mama are adorable and easy.
How about orange buttons? I almost want to go buy some just to make this glittery button pumpkin from Adventure in a Box.
Check out even more great pumpkin crafts at Crafts on Sea, Crafty Morning, No Time for Flash Cards, the Idea Room (fall crafts, including pumpkins) and Best Toys for Toddlers (green autumn crafts for kids). And if you’re looking for things to do with actual pumpkins, check out this amazing list of pumpkin crafts and activities from Hands On As We Grow.
And while this is one I made myself, I still love the mason jar lid pumpkin I made a few years ago.
Do you have any pumpkin crafts planned or know how you’re going to decorate your jack o’lanterns this year? I’d love to hear what you’re up to!
