20 In Fall

Easy DIY Paper Maché Pumpkins

The weather has cooled down pretty nicely and I love it. So much that I can´t deny Fall is basically around the corner, so why not kick off the start of the new season with some cute and easy DIY paper maché pumpkins? I had no idea how they would turn out, I just started experimenting a little and well, I´m quite happy with these two. My Fall decor is on the simple side, I am not into Fall colours this year at all. Well, I am loving the mustard tones but that is about it. Same with these pumpkins, they are very simple and plain. My daughter mentioned that she had never seen such plain looking pumpkins before, lol. I don´t take it personal.

Easy DIY Paper Maché Pumpkins

What you will need:

plastic bag as pumpkin stuffing

white school glue

aluminium foil

white napkins or paper towel

white chalky finish paint

short wooden stick from the backyard

faux green sage leaves

 

I didn´t want the pumpkin to be hollow, thinking it would collapse when putting the stick in the middle at the end.

1. Form a round ball with a plastic bag and wrap aluminium foil around it.

2. Cover in white glue and stick napkin or paper towel scraps all around it. The crunchier, the better!

Let sit and dry for a day or until dry and repeat step 2.

3. Paint with white chalk paint. Let dry. Look for sticks in your backyard or park and poking a hole with scissors first, squeeze sticks in pumpkins, making sure they are tilted a bit to one side.

4. Cut some leaves from an artificial plant of choice, in my case I cut some off of my artificial Ikea sage plant. Stick leaves in beside sticks. Voila!

Have you ever tried paper maché before? I know there are different recipes out there and I have tried one once using flour, but it didn´t work out for me at all! These little pumpkins did though and look so cute with my simple fall decor. Well, I hope you got inspired and make your own!

Thanks for stopping by today,

    Really super easy to put together and with this you don’t need to wait for pumpkin forms to show up. I love the little deer cushion you have peeking into the background on the photos. Enjoy your week, I enjoyed your post.

    This is the second time today that I am saying these words, I’ve never met a pumpkin that I did not love. I am in LOVE with these pumpkins! I will repeat something else that I seem to say often too, YOU never cease to amaze me with your delightful kreativity!! I tried paper mache with my daughters many years ago, it was a disaster. This method sounds much better. Thank-you!

    These pumpkins are great, Katrin. I’ve never paper mached before. It seems so easy and a super creative way to bring pumpkins into your home

    These turned out super cute, but doesn’t surprise me any. Everything you make is simple but super super cute! I love the texture on these, and I like the white even it that’s not a fall color.
    I just cut out my fabric circles yesterday for making cloth pumpkins, I may have to try these as well.

    Love, love, love Katrin. I must admit I’ve never had too much luck with paper mache made from flour. It always turns into a gooey mess that either never dries or dries all flaky and mouldy. Yuck.

      Yah, same here! It started smelling after a few days too. I prefer the glue version. Thanks friend!
