I have a thing for unique-looking pumpkins – white, green, blue, striped – you name it, I want to bring it home. Unfortunately, I get overruled each and every time we go pumpkin picking. It’s not that I don’t love a perfectly orange pumpkin to carve the night before Halloween, it’s just that sometimes I want something a little different.
But when you live in a house full of Traditionalists, you have to get creative. So this year, when I saw this nifty little craft in Lowe’s Creative Ideas for Home & Garden, I knew I would get my chance to sneak in an odd colored pumpkin into the mix!
I waited until Michael’s put their Craft Pumpkins on sale, and went in and snatched up a 13″, cream-colored one like this one. My reasoning behind buying a faux pumpkin instead of a real one is that I can keep it year after year, adding it to my collection of Halloween decorations. As for the House Numbers, I found some really neat looking ones at Lowe’s the other day, but I’m sure you can pick them up at any local hardware store.
Anyway, this craft is so incredibly easy to do that even this not-so-crafty-sister was able to do it!
Outdoor House Number Ideas: Funkin Pumpkin Craft
- 1, 13″ Craft Pumpkin (go crazy and pick a cool color!)
- 1 set of House Numbers (in a contrasting color to your pumpkin so they stand out)
- A hammer (to tap the nails in)
Step 1: Place your craft pumpkin on a steady surface. Line house numbers up, one at a time, in the desired spot on the pumpkin. Push the little nails that came with the house numbers into the pumpkin. You may need a hammer to tap them in (I did). Set your pumpkin in a highly trafficked area and enjoy!
