DIY Pom Pom Pumpkins


Happy October! It’s hard to believe that spooky season is already here. October is one of my favorite months, and I’m excited for cooler temperatures, football and yummy treats that come with this season.


I am already looking forward to decorating my apartment a bit more this weekend for the upcoming holiday and season. I love decorating colorfully, and last year my mom found these colorful pom pom Christmas trees that I got so many compliments on. I decided to do something similar for the fall with pumpkins. This DIY project is inexpensive and simple, and only requires three items for assembly. How amazing is that?!


First, you will need a plastic pumpkin or two to decorate. I recommend heading to the Target dollar section for this. The pumpkins will be covered, so it doesn’t really matter what they look like. I tried to find pumpkins with a gold stem to make the final product look more cohesive.


Then, pick out a bag or two of pom poms. You can choose to keep things consistent with one color, but in my opinion, the more color, the better! The last item you will need is a hot glue gun.


The assembly is super easy. I made rows of pom poms about a centimeter apart so they could dry faster. After you’ve made your way around the pumpkin, go back and fill in the empty rows. The key is to get the pom poms tightly packed together to cover the entire exterior. 


Voila! You now have a cute and colorful pumpkin! Let me know if you decide to make your own DIY pom pom pumpkin. I’d love to see it!
