With Fall right around the corner my peeps from Michaels asked me to come up with a Fall project using these amazing craft pumpkins. When I went to Michaels I was so excited to see the different craft pumpkins in the store! I wanted to create something fresh and modern that anyone could create as well. I purchased 1 13″ craft pumpkin by Ashland in Cream and two 9″ craft pumpkins.
Step One: Paint your pumpkin and set aside to dry. I recommend painting a second coat.

Step Two: Get your coil of moss (purchased from Michaels) and cut a piece to hot glue to the top of your pumpkin. Make sure to hold your moss in place until your glue is completely dry!
This is what it will look like when it’s dry. How precious!
I used this amazing Fabric Fusion to apply some glitter details. This stuff is typically used for fabric but today I will show you another way you could incorporate it into your crafting world!
Step Three: Cut your sheet of Fabric Fusion into thin triangles, peel off one side then apply glass glitter to the side that is sticky. Don’t worry once the glitter is on the sheet it will NOT come off!
Step Four: Carefully peel off your sticky side of glass glitter and apply the top portion of the triangle to the bottom portion of pumpkin stem then slowly stick it all on the pumpkin.
I am so in love with this part! It adds a nice elegant look to my pumpkins and it literally took a few minutes! Much easier than glue!
I love how translucent it looks once it is on the pumpkin. If I close my eyes I can see this in my own version of Alice in Wonderland, RIGHT!
There are tons of ways to DIY your own craft pumpkin for your home, a party or even as a gift.
