HOLIDAY DIY: 9 Teal Pumpkin Projects Roundup
The Teal Pumpkin Project was created to provide non-food treats for kids with food allergies. At Halloween, to show that you have these treats available, display a teal pumpkin on your porch. Though if you don't have a porch (apartments), paint a wood pumpkin and hang it as a sign, on your door. Just like regular pumpkin decorating, you can get super fancy or keep them simple. I'm rounded up 9 projects to inspire your own teal pumpkin creation. I did not make any of these pumpkins, so please use the provided links to find the original source. Some of these pumpkins have tutorials, and others are just inspiration.
1) The Crafted Life - Pumpkin Vase
2) Tiffany Dillard Bullington - Burlap Flowers Pumpkin
3) Muddy Boots and Diamonds - Pumpkin Trio
4) Making it Milk Free - Ombre Pumpkin
5) Kelly Elko - Decoupage Lace Pumpkin
6) Sarah Bakes - Fabric Decoupaged Pumpkin
7) Positively Splendid - Gold Foil Pumpkins
8) Painting the Gown Red - Vintage Camper Pumpkins
9) DIY Network - Vampire Treat Dish Pumpkin
If you needed some extra inspiration for what non-food treats would be good to buy, check out this helpful infographic from FARE Teal Pumpkin Project. A lot of these things can be found at dollar stores. However, if you're having a big event, check out Oriental Trading. They're a great resource for party supplies, which are handy for school parties where food treats are discouraged.
If you're not super creative Michaels has (maybe had by now) faux pumpkins that were already teal. If you can't find those, they should have all of their pumpkins and other Halloween stuff about 50% off. I scored some half pumpkins last year, post-Halloween, for a few dollars each. You'll see what I did with those in another post. The half pumpkins are great for hanging on a wall, as they already have a hanger set into the back. Whatever you make, have fun with it. Happy Makery!
