I found some spackling from the Dollar Tree, and of course I had to use it to make a spackling pumpkin. This Spackling Pumpkin is so cute, not to mention that it perfect as a shelf sitter. Personally, I’d go as far to say that it looks quite high-end, but that’s just me. I would love to tell you how I made this DIY! Let’s get into the craft. Don’t forget that you can watch the video replay below!

Also, here is what you’ll need:
  • Spackling (blue and white)
  • Marker
  • Wood pieces and stain
  • Jute string
  • Raffia

Firstly, to make this craft you’ll want to stain your wood pieces. Then, once it’s dried, you can add your spackling. Make sure you shape the spackling as a pumpkin, so in some sort of oblong shape. At first, I used a spatula to spread the spackling but then filled it in with a brush. I then, used a hair drier to make the process quicker and added the ‘lines’ of the pumpkin simultaneously.

Secondly, I added some blue spackling to the white and used an orange marker to add a little fall look to it. Next, I used the blue spackling to the outer edges of the wood piece to emphasize the blue inside the pumpkin!

Thirdly, I added my jute string stems and hot glued them to the pumpkins. Afterwards, I added a small decorative pumpkin to the side, I cut it in half to give it a 3-D appearance. To finish the spackling pumpkins, I added a raffia bow to each one.

Finally, you have an adorable spackling pumpkin! It’s fairly easy to make but super fun! Make sure you follow us on our other social medias, like Facebook, Instagram, Youtube, TikTok, and Pinterest! Also, check out the blog for more posts like this!
