Easy DIY Pumpkin Cardboard

Fall and Halloween are identical with pumpkins. If you want a fake pumpkin but tired of plastic pumpkins, this super easy diy pumpkin from cardboard could be a great idea! You can use it along the Fall season, from welcoming the Fall, fun with Halloween and celebrating thanksgiving. And it’s a very cheap Halloween DIY or Fall DIY or Thanksgiving DIY, whatever you wanted to call it.


Things To Prepare

Very easy DIY pumpkin project, only takes you just about cardboard to make it. Here are exactly what you need to have:

  • Cardboard
  • Flannel (color: green)
  • Orange pumpkin watercolor
  • Glue


How To Make

Super easy to make and you don’t have to be too detail, so it’s a quick diy to do. Let me share you how the steps are:

  1. Draw circle on the cardboard, make a set of two for each diameter. But start with middle circle which only took one circle; I made it in around 3 inches (8 cm). Make a quarter  of an inch smaller diameter from one circle to another fir the next circles. So, make 1 middle circle (3 inches), 7 sets of circles with a quarter inch smaller each circle, and 3 circles to continue the 9th circle for the pumpkin’s top; with still a quarter inch smaller for each circle.
  2. Glue and stack up the circles of cardboard of each diameter. Leave it dry.
  3. Cut around 3/4 inch of 20 circles on cardboard to make the pumpkin stem. Stack the circles and glue each of it and let it dry.
  4. Glue the cardboard steam to the cardboard pumpkin and let it dry.
  5. Paint the cardboard pumpkin with orange pumpkin and some brown watercolor to the stem.
  6. At last, tie a green flannel to the pumpkin stem. Finished!


This cardboard pumpkin was my other cardboard project that I did, I made a maple tree from cardboard and Fall letters cardboard. Easy and cheap seasonal diy for your Fall and Halloween decor inspiration. A rustic rustic look of the cardboard pumpkin is just a great upcycling project. You can be creative with the colors and decorations of the pumpkin. Be creative and happy trying!
