3 DIY Decorated Pumpkin Ideas

I am partnering with Oriental Trading to bring you 3 DIY ideas for decorating a ceramic pumpkin for Halloween. I received product in exchange for this post, but all thoughts are 100% my own.

Fall is here, so it is time to pull out everything pumpkin for my decor! Since we finished our basement renovation, I now have two mantels to decorate! I decided to use fall decor on the upstairs one and Halloween decor on the one in the basement. I picked out a set of three ceramic pumpkins from Oriental Trading and came up with three different ideas for decorating them.

I used items from the dollar store to decorate ceramic pumpkins three different ways for Halloween.


How to make a Black Polka Dot Pumpkin


Supplies:
Ceramic Pumpkin
Pencil with new eraser
Black acrylic paint
Paper plate

I used items from the dollar store to decorate ceramic pumpkins three different ways for Halloween.

I squirted a small dollop of the black paint onto a paper plate and dipped the eraser into the paint. I used the eraser to paint polka dots randomly on the medium sized ceramic pumpkin until it was covered all the way around.

How to Make a Pom Pom Pumpkin 


Supplies:
Ceramic Pumpkin
Pom Pom trim in black and orange
Glue Dots
Scissors

I used items from the dollar store to decorate ceramic pumpkins three different ways for Halloween.

I had a couple of pieces of black and orange pom pom trim leftover from the Popcorn Box Challenge I participated in last year and thought it would be perfect to decorate the small ceramic pumpkin. I cut the trim so I would have 4 pieces. (2 orange and 2 black) I then used the Glue Dots to attach the trim vertically in the creases of the pumpkin; I tried to space it evenly as possible. You could also use a hot glue gun, but I had a pack of glue dots on hand, and that allows me to change it up later.

How to Make a Spider Covered Pumpkin


Supplies:
Ceramic Pumpkin
Glitter spiders
Glue dots

I used items from the dollar store to decorate ceramic pumpkins three different ways for Halloween.

This one was the easiest! I simply used 2-3 Glue Dots on each spider to randomly attach them to the pumpkin.
