Step 5: Now it’s time for our garland! Take any color twine and cut about a yard and a half of twine.

What You’ll Need: 

White Pumpkins (must be plastic and any size)

Any Color Paint

Sponge Brushes

Mod Podge or Hot Glue Gun

Foam Colorful Sheets

Scissors

Step 1: Paint your pumpkin about a little under half way down. I like to curve the edges to make them more rounded. Let the pumpkin dry for about 10 minutes.

Step 2: Take your foam sheets and cut slim strips. This will act as your sprinkles for your cupcake. Cut the slim strips into little pieces to act as the sprinkles.

Step 3: Glue on the sprinkles when the paint is dry on top of the painted area.

I made 3 pumpkin cupcakes this day because it was SO easy! I love making these and having them around my house! It is the perfect way to enjoy the pumpkins without the mess of a real one!

Tree Trunk Pumpkin 

I call this DIY the “tree trunk” pumpkin because it is using a piece of an actual tree!

Wire

Green Raffia

Step 3: Take your raffia and wire and cut about a 12 inches of wire. Wrap the green raffia around the wire to create the leaf of the pumpkin. DSCN1447

After all steps are complete, glue the brown wood and wire to the center of the back of the oval pumpkin. And it should look like this:

Halloween Macrame Wall Decor 

This is a simple DIY that takes no time! It’s fun to make and give a pop of color to your wall!

What You’ll Need: 

Scissors

Orange and Black Yarn

Hanger or Blanket Hanger

Step 1: Take your yarn and wrap around your forearm 20 times to create the long pieces of yarn. Cut the yarn on one end after wrapped around arm.

Step 2: Remove the hook piece from your hanger and take the piece of yarn and make a loop on the rod. Shown below.

Step 3: Loop through the hole the rest of the yarn piece and pull towards you letting the yarn dangle. Once that is complete, alternate between orange and black throughout the rest of the rod.

Once it is complete, it should look like this!

You may cut the ends to look more even or in a “V” shape on the bottom like most decorative pieces do. I then took more string that was left over to tie on the ends of the rod to hang on a hook.
