{DIY Tutorial} BOO Stacked Pumpkins

Boo Pumpkins 14Boo Pumpkins 13

The weather is finally out of the triple digits and that could only mean one thing, Halloween is almost here! Last year I felt up some pumpkins…errr, added felt to pumpkins. This year I decided to stack ‘em. Nothing scary about these pumpkins, they are actually a bit on the cutesy side…just how I like my Halloween. Who ever said that Halloween decor required zombies and skulls? Although, I did manage to glitter up some mini skulls for my entryway this year. Maybe I’ll find a zombie to glitter up too.

Materials
3 Artificial Pumpkins (or you could also try this with real pumpkins)
Modge Podge Glue (Sealer is optional)
Paint Brush or Sponge (for Modge Podge)
Scissors
Cricut Machine (or scissors and letter stencils)
Carving Knife
Scrapbook Paper
Felt (a small 1.5×11 inch strip will do)
Hot Glue (or other adhesive)

Directions
Step 1: Cut small holes in the bottom of 2 pumpkins, just big enough for the stem to fit through.

Step 2: Stack the pumpkins, adding a big glob of hot glue (or other adhesive) in between each layer. You will have to hold your pumpkins in place for a few seconds after hot gluing, so they don’t come apart. The pumpkin without the hole goes on the bottom.

Step 3: Use a cricut machine or stencils/scissors to cut out B-O-O letters.

Step 4: Mod podge the B-O-O letters to the pumpkins, B on top and the O’s following. I sprayed Modge Podge Sealer over the letters once modge podged, this is optional.

Step 5: Make a felt bow, following the felt bow tutorial found on The Crafty Nest. Hot glue the bow to the top of the pumpkin.
