Beach Pumpkin Crafts for Florida Inspired Halloween Decorations

I may not be in Florida right now but my heart is certainly with friends and neighbors who are in the process of rebuilding after Hurricane Irma. There is so much to love about our Florida home and I used that inspiration to create these beach pumpkin crafts which will become part of our Halloween decorations.

Florida makes me think of the sun, beach, palm trees and flamingos and those things were my main inspiration for my beach pumpkin crafts. I’m not terribly artistic, but these Florida inspired pumpkin crafts take little artistic ability They just require time, patience and the right tools to create some awesome beach Halloween decorations!

How to make the Flamingo Pumpkin:

Select a taller pumpkin. Using small, sharp scissors, cut around the flamingos on the ribbon. Cut as many flamingos as there are sections on your selected pumpkin. Apply a generous layer of craft glue to one section of the pumpkin and lay a flamingo cut out on top then apply a layer of glue over the flamingo cut out to secure it to the pumpkin. Repeat for each section and flamingo. Let glue dry then re-glue any flamingo corners that didn’t stick down and coat the entire pumpkin with a layer of glue to give it a nice shine and tie a ribbon around the stem.
