DIY Diorama Pumpkin

DIY Diorama Pumpkin.

I was inspired by those beautiful diorama Christmas baubles to make a spooktastic pumpkin with minimal cutting. This is the perfect pumpkin if you want extra effort points, but with very minimal effort!

This pumpkin is way easier that it looks, so perfect for scaring away ghouls this Halloween.

You will need:

  • A Pumpkin
  • Cocktail Sticks
  • Black and White Card.
  • Glue Gun
  • Knife and Spoon
  • Battery Tealight

Step One:

Cut a circle into the front of your pumpkin, Then scrape out the inside.

Step Two:

I used my Cricut explore air to cut out a spooky scene. But it would be just as simple to print out some shapes and cut them or draw your own onto black card.

I cut out a haunted house, two trees, two ghosts, a line of trick or treaters, a witch and Happy Halloween. Be sure to measure them up to your own pumpkins size.

Use your glue gun to glue cocktail sticks to the backs of your card cutouts. Leave about a centimetre of stick below the shape to stick into the pumpkin. For smaller shapes, I cut cocktail sticks in half.

Step three:

Add your candle, make sure it’s a pretend one!! Then start sticking your card shapes into the pumpkin to build up your spooky diorama scene.
