Easy DIY Pumpkin Caterpillar

Like I said in my home decor post, my house is getting Pumpkin ERRAYTHANG! I’m excited to share this easy to make Fall Craft, Pumpkin Caterpillar.


Step 1: Get Pumpkins! I decided to use Ironsides. They’re simple to paint and will help give the caterpillar the classic round shape. These pumpkins are from the Pick’n Patch in Stanley, NY.


Step 2: Pick the very best pumpkins. I suggest 3 similar in size and then 1 a little bit larger for the head.Perfect Ironsides for Caterpillar Craft

Step 3: Paint your pumpkins. I went with a green, but your caterpillar can be whatever color your heart desires. I think purple would be a awesome – if you make a purple one, please share!

Step 4: Now decorate! This can be polka-dots, antennas, eyes, mouth, whatever makes your pumpkin caterpillar happy!


Step 5: Share with me πŸ™‚ Tweet (@yellowdogpinkpi), or tag me on instagram (@yellowdogpinkpig)

I love painting pumpkins because they last so much longer than if you carve them. The caterpillar is also fun to move around and make other shapes! The kido’s love playing with them!
