Halloween is only days away, and while I am still decorating my home and preparing the perfect costume, I am also looking for crafts that will last past Halloween. Pumpkins are a great theme throughout autumn and over Thanksgiving. Basically, they are a way to bring some color into your home and celebrate the autumn harvest. Here are some of my favorite pumpkin crafts for Halloween and all autumn:
Round Felted Pumpkins– These are quick to make and could even be used to prop up place cards at an autumn feast.
Terra Cotta Pumpkin– Using inexpensive materials, this pumpkin still achieves a certain elegance. You can recycle chipped or broken terra cotta pots from your garden for this craft.
Sparkle and Shine Pumpkins– For a more formal gathering, these pumpkins are perfect. The metallic autumn colors of these pumpkin would look great grouped together as a centerpiece.
