Framed Halloween Pumpkin Decor Tutorial


  • 11×14 Unfinished Wood Frame
  • 1/2 Plastic Pumpkin
  • Black Spray paint, Satin finish
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • 11.5″ x 14.5″ Piece of Halloween Fabric
  • Scissors

1. First spray paint your wood frame black. Allow to dry thoroughly.


2. After frame is dry, flip over and hot glue the fabric to the back of the frame so that it covers the opening.


3. Trim off any excess fabric so that it doesn’t show when you flip the frame back around.

4. Using a hammer and nail, hang the frame with fabric in it on the wall. Then center the half pumpkin in the opening and hammer a small nail or brad through the fabric and hang pumpkin on the nail.

Umm, SO easy, right?! And it look totally awesome, right??! I’m really loving it! It will so go well with my Halloween decor when I put it up in a few weeks.
