Framed pumpkin craft


Today I have a super cute and easy fall craft to share. I know it’s a little early to put out your fall decor, BUT… it’s almost September, which is the perfect month to start your holiday crafting! I feel like once October hits life just gets crazy with the holidays and the time slips away! So why not start now? ;)

I’m going to show you how to make this cute framed pumpkin. You may have caught the video tutorial yesterday, but I thought I would post the full tutorial here as well. Here’s what you’ll need to get started:



  • 8×10 frame ( I found mine at Cut It Out and spray painted it black)
  • scrapbook paper
  • glue stick or hot glue
  • vinyl sticker or chip board letters
  • pipe cleaner

1. First I cut  the word “pumpkin” out on my CAMEO. I used the black fuzzy vinyl. I love that stuff!

2. Then I cut a piece of scrapbook paper (8×10).

3. Next I glued the paper to the frame backing (cardboard).

4. Then I attached the “pumpkin” to the scrapbook paper by peeling away the transfer paper.

5. Then I got glued one of my paper pumpkins to the center of the paper. I made my pumpkin 4 inch. Find tutorial here.
