Pumpkin Craft Ideas

These pumpkin templates are perfect for using in the fall months for craft projects, coloring, and decorations. Here are a few fun ideas for ways to use them for fall crafts and Halloween crafts.

First why not use real pumpkins to paint the pumpkin templates! Buy small real pumpkins from the store and dip them in paint. You can also use gourds. Then use the pumpkin like a stamp on the pumpkin template. This is a fun way for kids to paint and easy for young kids.

Another fun fall material to use is leaves! Use real or fake leaves to paint. Add them to a stick to make a full nature paint brush or just press them in paint. Then press them on to the pumpkin template. It is a great way to paint with kids.

Use the leaves to glue on the template. Either use pieces of leaves or whole leaves as a craft material. It’s fun for kids to use materials from the world around them. This adds to the activity by going out to collect leaves for the project.

Make spooky fun faces on the pumpkins. Use the template above with jack o lantern face pieces. Build your own pumpkin with these faces. Add googly eyes on top if you want it to be extra fun.

Draw designs on the blank pumpkin templates. This one lets kids use their creativity and make the pumpkin how they want. Draw spooky faces, funny faces, or a simple pumpkin pattern.

Make pumpkin paintings. Tape the simple outline template on to a canvas. You can get cheap canvas at the dollar store for a group of kids. Then kids can paint around the template and make a pumpkin shape. Remove the template and they can paint the center pumpkin orange.

Pumpkin seed craft. Dye pumpkin seeds by putting them in bags with different colors of food coloring. Get the seeds completely covered with color. Then take them out to dry on a pieces of parchment paper or on a paper plate. Then glue the colorful pumpkin seeds on to the pumpkin template

Plan out your pumpkin carving by drawing your design on the free pumpkin templates. This lets you practice your pumpkin carving before you start on the pumpkin.
