DIY No-Carve Fox Pumpkins

/ Wednesday, October 3, 2018

My daughter Charlotte loves foxes, which is pretty hilarious since she's a newborn baby! This is her first Halloween, so I thought it would be fun to make an easy, no-carve fox pumpkin to keep in her room. Here's what I did...

Yes, it's true. Charlotte babbles and makes eyes only at foxes no other creatures; stuffed animals, foxes in books, on her pajamas. I don't know what it is about them but she's obsessed! I should really dress her as a fox for Halloween but I already started on another costume (whoops!) and I feel like it's too late to change it...

So since she won't be dressed as a fox, I thought a homemade pumpkin might be a cute DIY Halloween decor idea for her nursery. This is a super easy, fast project. I made this no-carve pumpkin in literally 5 minutes with things I already had around the house.

Honestly, I feel like the woodland creature theme is so hot for baby rooms right now, you could totally make this with a funkin (those fake pumpkins you see at Target and Michael) and just keep it as DIY decor all year round. Anyway! I hope you enjoy this simple tutorial. Here are the instruction written out below.

MAKES: 1 pumpkin

1 small pumpkin
1 piece white felt
Scissors, for cutting
Hot glue gun, for gluing
1 piece black felt (or permanent black marker)
1 piece orange felt

1. Put the pumpkin on a piece of paper to protect your work surface. 
2. Cut out a heart-shaped face from the white felt using scissors. Attach to the pumpkin using a hot glue.
3. Add 2 eyes and a nose using black felt or a permanent marker. 
4. Cut a tail and 2 ears from the orange felt. If desired, cut 2 smaller ears and a furry tail-end from the white felt for detailing. Attach to each other and to the pumpkin using hot glue.
