Create Some Easy “Pumpkin Fall Decor”

#TBCCrafters Hop

 With Halloween now over, I had some of the pumpkins left behind (since we didn’t carve these) and was wondering what to do with them.   I was reading through my AllYou magazine the other day and saw these cute little things in there.  Figured I’d take a trip to the dollar store and make some of my own.  

Fall is seeming to be almost over here in the White Mountains of Arizona.  The wind was so bad last week that almost all of the leaves are out of the trees and we’re feeling those crazy cold temps at night.  Almost snow time and the local ski resort is already getting ready.  Crazy!!  But, before winter hits us with it’s cold left hook, I want to continue to celebrate Fall.  It is my favorite season and so beautiful up here.

Coming from CA years ago, I never knew what “seasons” meant!  Now living in the beautiful area we do, up at 6800 feet, we get to feel and smell the changes in the air, when God decides to make a change during the year.  Nothing better than the fall colors, warm wassail and family.

Enjoy this #TBCCrafters craft, I sure hope you like it!!

Here’s a picture of the area we saw a few weeks ago, up the road, enjoying the fall colors.

“Pumpkin Fall Decor” Craft

Materials/Tools Needed:

  • Leftover Pumpkins, Small or Mini
  • Candle Holder
  • Candle
  • Fall Decor
  • Spoon
  • Packing Supplies, If Needed
  • & Time


Being by tracing the top of the candle holder you’ll be using to the top of the pumpkin, centered over the stem.


Next, cut out the part where you’ll be inserting the candle holder.  Be sure to cut only to where you kind of have to force it in, so that it doesn’t slide through and end up inside the pumpkin.


When you’re done cutting it out and test fitting your candle holder, you can begin the fun scoop it out part!!  They have seedless watermelon nowadays, why can’t they make these that way? ha/ha


Once you have it completely cleared out, you can insert your candle holder.  I tested mine and found that I needed a bit of an anchor, so I inserted some of my packaging bags to take up some room.


After I got that in there, I inserted my candle holder and it added a lot of stability.


Now you’re ready to start decorating it.  I found some cheap little fall style pieces and just tore the paper holding them together off to make each piece separate.


Once you have them separated, you can insert them on the edges of the candle holder however you wish.


Once you have all of this done, to as much detail as you wish, you can insert your candle (I just put in real candles for the pictures, but will use battery operated ones due to fire hazard).


Now you can set them out wherever you wish and let them help you continue to enjoy the Fall season, and be glad the candy comas are just about over!  Hope you like them!!
