Tis the season for pumpkin errthang. I love filling my home with fall decor and the scent of warm pumpkin candles as the air chills outside, and each year I make a few fun home decor pieces to add to the pumpkin family.

This string art pumpkin was inspired by how much everyone loves the string art name decor I made for my middle son’s room. I love it as well and I wondered what it would look like on a pumpkin! I decided to use a craft pumpkin for this project just so I’m not putting time into something I need to toss in a few weeks but this looks just as awesome on a real pumpkin!

Once I finished my pumpkin, the black string resembled a spider web and we decided to add a black spider ring onto it to make it a little spookier! Once Halloween is over, we can remove the spider to keep it out as Fall decor for a few more weeks-I love a multi purpose project!

Here’s how I made it-you’ll need:string-art-pumpkin-supplies

  • A Pumpkin (real or fake)
  • Nails
  • Hammer
  • String or Thread
  • Shape or Letter Printed on Paper

Choose the shape or letter you want, size it to fit onto your pumpkin and print out onto paper.

When you extend your string across to another nail, wrap the string around that nail and repeat until your design is filled. There’s no perfect way to wrap your string-the more random the better it will look!spiderweb-string-art-pumpkinIt looks perfect on the front porch and gives a slightly spooky feel to our simple fall decor!fall-front-door-decor
