6 Polka Dot Pumpkin Craft Ideas!

me and polka dot pumpkin

One of my favorite ways to decorate a pumpkin is to stick with a simple polka dot design. I personally believe you can never go wrong with polka dots or stripes! Here’s some fun ideas to get you inspired and mix up your polka dot pumpkin crafts this year!

1) Add a fancy monogram and swirls to mix up your pounced polka dot look with Half Full Martini!

2) Add glitter dots to your pumpkin with Better Homes and Gardens

3) A little spray paint and circle labels make this little faux pumpkin by Darling Doodles shine.

4) How cool are these tack and nail pumpkins from Jaimee Rose at AZCentral?

5) Use an apple corer and mallet to make these multicolor gourds from Midwest Living!

6) Leave the holes unplugged for this pretty luminary look by Eddie Ross.

So are you going to make a polka dot pumpkin this year?

Until next time Swellions!

Sometimes the best crafts aren’t ones you spend hours making. They are just easy, breezy, and beautiful (sorry Cover Girl). The other night I wanted to jazz up some mini pumpkins while at a friends house. I had brought over materials, but not a lot, but did have on hand some sequins and some Aleene’s Original Tacky Glue and truth be told, that was all I really needed! All I did was just add a bit of glue and glue on each sequin for the star polka dot ones, and for the cascading sequin pumpkin, I realized just kinda dumping the sequins on there and then repositioning them worked quite nicely. I drizzled the glue down the side of the pumpkin for the clumpy sequin look on the sides.
