One of the best parts of Halloween is pumpkins. The arrival of pumpkin spice lattes, jack-o-lanterns, and pumpkins of all shapes, sizes and colors to local farmers’ markets heralds the beginning of my favorite season. The sad part about real pumpkins is what happens to them after a couple of weeks: pumpkin mush. Halcraft designer Michelle Mach found these orange  & cream craft pumpkins at her local Michaels Store and became inspired to create a pumpkin we can enjoy for years, not just weeks.

Michelle shows us just a start of what you can do with craft pumpkins. Craft pumpkins are hollow and made of a foamy material so that they’re lightweight, soft, and very easy to work with. Use Michelle’s inspiration designs as shown above, or create a new design of your own. You’re only limit is your imagination!

Here’s what you’ll need to make your own beaded pumpkin, starting with the cream Trick or Treat pumpkin:
