Are you ready for a cool Day of the Dead pumpkin craft you can make in a matter of minutes? You can customize this project with any napkins you like.
Skills Required: Beginner. Napkins are thin so you probably want to have a little bit of experience with Mod Podge to prevent wrinkles. Overall, it’s an easy craft.
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.
Day of the Dead Pumpkin
Gather These Supplies
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 Mod Podge to your Day of the Dead pumpkin!
I added a little to the back of the napkin design 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.
This is a 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 add whatever design you like to your pumpkin using the napkins of your choice!
