Pumpkin Picture Frame

This adorable pumpkin frame craft is the perfect way to display your jack-o-lantern carving pictures or your photos of your visit to the local pumpkin patch.  Using simple materials and techniques, this fall craft is a great one for even young children to do. 

What you'll need:

  • Unfinished wooden oval frame (available at craft stores)
  • Paint - orange and light brown paint
  • 3-D Paint - black
  • Paint brushes
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Green craft foam
  • Green pipe cleaner
  • Tape
  • A favorite picture
How to make your Pumpkin Picture Frame:
  • Paint the frame orange and set aside to dry.
  • Cut a stem and leaf out of green craft foam.
  • Cut a pipe cleaner in half.  Twist the pipe cleaner around your finger to make a spiral.
  • Paint light brown lines down the frame to make it look more like a pumpkin. 
  • Use glue to attach the stem, leaf and pipe cleaner vine to the top of the frame.  Use tape to provide extra support (pipe cleaners tend to slip in just glue because they are heavier). 
  • Using black 3-D paint, write the year on the leaf. 
  • Place your favorite fall photo in the frame and display!
