Decorated Faux Pumpkins and Trick Your Pumpkin Contest

I recently had a ton of fun hitting up Michael’s and gathering some supplies and faux pumpkins to decorate. Today I am sharing and talking about these “Decorated Faux Pumpkins and Trick Your Pumpkin Contest.”

When I shopped for the faux pumpkins I didn’t have any ideas in mind for what I was going to do, I kind of picked up cute things that would possible work for these pumpkins and surprisingly what I picked out was all used.

Before we get to the fun pumpkins, you all need to know about this super fun #TrickYourPumpkin contest. Keep reading.

 Before the embellished fun!

How To: First I started with some cute crocheted circles found at Michaels and then I cut some round canvas fabric and lastly glued some large black buttons to the center. Now you have some owl eyes.

Next I cut some more canvas triangles and I made sure I cut them out on the fold. I then used some craft wire and shaped it into a triangle. I placed the wire inside the owl ears and hot glues around the edges. I also hot glued the ears down to the “Owl Pumpkin”

This pumpkin was super easy. I just took the cute lace and burlap ribbon from Michaels and wrapped and hot glued it down around the pumpkin. Then I cut pieces of the burlap, tore off some of the lace and folded pieces that were hot glued to the top of the pumpkin and around the stem. diy embellished faux pumpkins lace burlap
