DIY Halloween Craft: Pumpkin Decor

DIY fall pumkin decor with scented pinecones

The Craft Challenge theme for September is Halloween so I decided to go with pinecones and pumpkins. You know those spiced scented pinecones you smell when you walk into Michael’s? I can’t stay away from the things! They smell amazing. I had to get them into my craft this week. And I haven’t decorated pumpkins yet this year, so it just seemed fitting.

This craft is really easy, smells wonderful and will give your table or windowsill a nice pop for fall. Keep reading if you’re interested in making your own!

Step 1: cut a big hole in your craft pumpkin

You can buy pumpkins with the hole already cut. Get that one if you can. If not, use a pumpkin carving kit to cut your own.

Step 2: add decorative fall elements

Put your flameless candle in the middle and surround it with scented pinecones.

You’re done! You can tie some ribbon or maybe some burlap around the stem at the top if you want to spice it up a little more. I wanted to keep this one a bit more simple.

I’d love to hear your thoughts! Leave them in the comments.

  1. Nice! This is perfect for Thanksgiving and if you wanted to make it do double duty you could add figurines to make a spooky Halloween diorama. If I wasn’t busy making my Trunk or Treat display I was thinking about making one of those.
