A shout out to all the Halloween lovers. I’m Kelsey from Poofy Cheeks and I am excited to be sharing an embellished Halloween Chicken Wire Pumpkin. I bought the pumpkin at Joann Fabrics last year, painted it and then used some stickers and embellishments to give it an extra dose of Halloween. This craft comes together so quickly and the best part is that it doesn’t get much easier! If you aren’t super crafty you can pull this off without a hitch. If you want a quick craft then this is the Halloween craft for you! 
 
MATERIALS
Chicken Wire Pumpkin
Orange Paint
Paint brush (or foam brush)
Clothespins
Stickers and Embellishments
 
INSTRUCTIONS
 
Step 1: Paint the wooden part of the pumpkin with orange paint. I used a sample size of BEHR Flaming Torch (PPU3-03) paint.

Step 2- Once the paint dries add embellishments using ribbon and clothespins to attach them to the chicken wire.
I used Halloween stickers, mini clothespins, ribbon,scrap paper, leave die cuts, and a mini cauldron. It took no time at all to make and when Halloween is over I will change out the Halloween embellishments with fall embellishments to last through Thanksgiving.

I have lots of Halloween decorations I have made and purchased over the years but this one is so fun. I love all of the colors, the pretty fonts and that I can change it out from year to year.
