Pumpkin Craft Roundup

Pumpkin Craft Roundup

Autumn is my favorite time of the year! I love the crisp, cool weather and all the fantastic fruits that are ready for the picking. In addition to apples, my kids and I love pumpkins. What better way to celebrate the start of autumn than with some fall pumpkin crafts!

Toddler Pumpkin Halloween Costume

My daughter wanted to be a pumpkin for her third Halloween. After quite a bit of thought and consideration, I decided that the best and easiest route for making a pumpkin costume for my toddler involved footed pajamas. I found some orange fleece foot pajamas that would keep my daughter toasty warm on a cold Halloween. I also ordered a cozy green fleece hat. Using black felt and my sewing skills, I then attached a Jack o’ lantern face to the front of the pajamas to make an adorable Toddler Pumpkin Halloween Costume.
