It’s that time of year again . . . FALL! I love getting the house ready and working on new projects. One of the first projects I got started on was a Day of the Dead Pumpkin Craft for Halloween.
It’s so popular right now, everywhere you go they have a Day of the Dead section for Halloween. So I had to make a craft inspired by it.
Supplies for this craft:
- Faux Pumpkin
- Paper Mod Podge
- Hot Glue
- Push Pins
I got some great pumpkins at Michaels for this project.
I found some cool napkins that I thought would be perfect for this project. I got the pack for $1.00!
Step 1 – Cut out Shape
I cut out the shape I wanted to use for this project.
Step 2 – Pin Shape to Pumpkin
I created the pattern I wanted and used some push pins to help keep in place.
Step 3 – Add Mod Podge
Now it’s time to add our Mod Podge!!
I added a little to the back and firmly pressed it onto my pumpkin. Then I smoothed it down with my fingers. Finally, I added another layer of Mod Podge on top. Let dry 30 minutes.
Step 4 – Add Succulents
I decided I wanted to add some succulents I had on hand to the top. I cut the stems off and hot glued the succulents on top.
Now that I’m finished I can display! I think the pumpkin turned out super cute.
Super simple Day of the Dead pumpkin craft you can have done in no time! If you’re not a Day of the Dead kind of person you can use whatever design you want using the napkins of your choice.
