Pumpkins are a fall decorating staple, and rightfully so! They come in a multitude of colors, shapes, and sizes, and they are seasonally appropriate for several months (meaning less work in changing out decor). Because of that, pumpkin crafts are always popular, and I’ve rounded up twenty unique pumpkin crafts that you’ll want to make this season.
Now trust me, these pumpkin crafts are not your typical “decorate a fake pumpkin” crafts! (Not that there’s anything wrong with those!) These are all unique pumpkin projects that feature pumpkins made out of anything BUT pumpkins (real or fake)!
To get full project instructions for any of these, just click the project title and you’ll go right to the site where the pumpkin craft tutorial lives.
