Autumn is just around the corner. That means it’s almost pumpkin time! Not only do we love all things pumpkin – coffee creamer, muffins, ice cream, etc. – but we love to decorate with pumpkins for fall.
I have pumpkins above the fireplace and pumpkins on the front porch. There are mini pumpkins in the entry way and pumpkin window clings in the homeschool room.
So, it will come as no surprise, that we like to do pumpkin crafts throughout the months of October and November. Here are some of our favorite pumpkin crafts along with some I found online. Which one will you try first?
