Creative Craft Ideas for Making Pumpkins and Pumpkin Home Decorations
Here we are again at the end of Summer so you know what is next … Pumpkin Season! Fall is always a welcome relief from the heat and a great time to change your home decor. On that note, I have found for you a bunch of easy pumpkin crafts for adults to make.
I love the variety in this roundup of pumpkin arts and crafts. As you will see, there are some made out of wood and wood slats as well as several different techniques for painting pumpkins.
And, if you are interested in learning how to make No Sew Fabric Pumpkins, there are a couple of tutorials for that as well.

What Kind of Paint Do You Use on Craft Pumpkins?
The kind of paint you need for craft pumpkins depends on the material they are made of.
If the pumpkin is plastic (like the Halloween buckets the kids carry for Trick Or Treating), then you need acrylic paints. If they are make of wood, you need a wood primer and then you can use acrylic paint.
