Fall is just around the corner and one of our favorite fall activities includes taking the family out to the pumpkin patch, and picking out the perfect pumpkin to decorate! Usually this activity calls for carving your freshly picked pumpkin, but this year we thought we would give you some ideas on how to decorate your pumpkins that aren’t just your typical jack-o-laterns.
What to wear to the pumpkin patch
Baby girl will look as cute as pumpkin pie in the Embroidered Evelyn Romper in in Pumpkin. This Romper was made for a day at the pumpkin patch! This romper features light pink and white stripes and an adorable peter pan collar. Let’s not forget about the oh so sweet embroidered pumpkin on the chest! For baby boy, the Applique Romper in Pumpkin is a great choice. This romper features light blue and white stripes and an embroidered pick-up truck with pumpkins in the bed of the truck.
For toddler boy, the Applique T-shirt in Pumpkin with the Basic Knit Short in Light Blue is the perfect outfit for those warm fall days. The Applique T-Shirt features that same embroidered pick-up truck with pumpkins. It's the ideal outfit if you are looking for a family coordinating look and the shorts feature an elastic waist for easy dressing.
For toddler girl, you can’t go wrong with the Embroidered T-shirt in Pumpkin or the Embroidered Evelyn Dress in Pumpkin. The embroidered t-shirt is a good choice for a play outfit while the Evelyn dress may be more ideal for fall family pictures.
Owl Sunflower Seed Pumpkin
What You Need
Hot Glue Gun
Two Craft sticks
Step 1: Cut a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin and remove all the pulp and seeds. Trace two small circles for eye holes and a small upside-down triangle for the beak. Cut out the shapes.
Step 2: Hot-glue the sunflower seeds one at a time in two circles around one eyehole. Glue the outer circle first, then adhere the inner one. Repeat for the other eyehole.
Step 3: Snap two crafts sticks into pieces 1-2 inches long. For the ears: Hot-glue five seeds to the end of one piece of craft stick (as shown); repeat to make the other ear. For the feet: Hot-glue three seeds to the end of one piece of craft stick (as shown); repeat to make the other foot. Cut small slits in the pumpkin to insert the ears and feet craft sticks. Insert the plain end of each stick into the slits.
Step 4: Place a candle inside the pumpkin and see it glow!
