Yep, it’s fall. And that means the pumpkins are out and with that come the pumpkin crafts! We’ve done lots of pumpkin projects over the years but there’s always something new to try. Halloween is one of my favorite times of year and I have a hard time not filling our porch and our house with pumpkins and pumpkin crafts, so I’m always looking for more fun things to do with them.

COOKIE CUTTER PUMPKINS

I love these cookie cutter pumpkins! What a cool idea! I know, I know, they’re really meant for doing  with toddlers and sadly, I don’t have toddlers anymore, but I still love them and considering how many cookie cutters I have (mostly from the toddler years!) this one is heading to the top of my list this year.

 MESS-FREE PUMPKIN DECORATING

Speaking of toddler friendly pumpkins, foam stickers make a fun, simple and safe way for the little ones in your life to decorate their own pumpkins. In fact, a project like this makes a great party activities for younger kids, gather a basket full of small pumpkins, a few markers and some packages of stickers and set them to work!

 Crayon Pumpkin

Also on my personal pumpkin to-do list this year are these melted crayon beauties. Because I might not have toddlers around anymore, but crayon, crayons I have a plenty. I love the bright colors and the colorful pumpkins are surprisingly modern looking.

What will you be doing with your pumpkins this year? Send us pictures! We’d love to see them. And be sure to check out our Craft Trends Pinterest board for more great ideas.
