These Woodland Creature No-Carve Pumpkins are the perfect way to dress up your pumpkins this fall. If you love pumpkins, but loathe carving them, this is the project for you!
Hooray for September 1st! I am so excited for fall this year. I think it has to do with the fact that we just moved to North Dakota and we’ve heard the fall colors here are beautiful. We’ve been living in Arizona the past three years and we’re so excited to experience four seasons again!
Find the darling fox socks here. We love ours!
We can’t wait to start decorating our new home for fall and we’re going start with these cute Woodland Creature Pumpkins!
The inspiration for these pumpkins came from these Woodland Creature Cups we made last year. We loved them so much we thought we’d try our hand at making them again, only this time using pumpkins!
These darling little pumpkins are a great craft to get the kids involved with and the best part is, because they’re made using faux pumpkins, they can be enjoyed again year after year!
Have I told you how much I’m loving the whole faux pumpkin craze! No more tossing our beloved fall creations in the trash when they’re begin to wilt. The best part of about faux pumpkins is that you can reuse them again and again AND no carving! Yay! 🙂
- Grey and Turquoise Craft Paint
- Foam brush
- Cardstock (grey and orange)
- Felt (grey, orange, off-white, tan, black)
- Black sharpie
- Hot glue gun
I’ve tried to make it as easy as possible for you to recreate these pumpkins at home. Simply print out and use the templates provided (links included below) to cut out all the felt and paper pieces you’ll need.
The templates are for the woodland creature craft cups so depending on what size of pumpkin you’re using you can use the “scale” feature within your printer options to increase or decrease the size of the printed templates. For these pumpkins I printed at 125 percent.
Fox Pumpkin Instructions
Gather supplies. Orange faux pumpkin, orange cardstock, sharpie, off-white felt, scissors, adhesive.
Remember to enlarge if using a bigger pumpkin. Print and cut out pattern pieces.
Use pattern pieces to cut out felt and orange card stock for the fox’s tail, ears and face.
Glue tail pieces together
Attach paper pieces to pumpkin as shown using adhesive / glue gun.
With a sharpie add a nose and eyes.
I love these Rebecca! So cute!
Thanks Ashley! They were fun to make. 🙂
These pumpkins are absolutely adorable. I love them!

I love this no carve pumpkin idea! When I was younger it was always frustrating when the pumpkin I was carving didn’t turn out exactly like the template. This is a safe alternative to using a knife. Awesome post! Sharing with my friends and family with kids! Absolutely adorable!
You’re so right @Lindsey Crafter – it’s so much safer than carving! Thank you for stopping by and for sharing with your friends. 🙂
So cute! What are the faux pumpkins made of, and where did you buy them?
They’ve from Michaels @Jessica! 🙂 You can find them here —> http://www.michaels.com/seasonal-decor/craft-pumpkins/851417472/?cm_mmc=PR-_-MichaelsMakers-_-simpleasthat-_-CraftPumpkins
Super fun craft. Did it today with my girls. Added a bear because one of my girls is obsessed. Thanks for the idea. Also found the pumpkins at Michaels-60%off!
Oh my goodness….I have to see the bear Michelle! 🙂
I’d love to see the bear too…🥰
Do you have pics of the bear? I’m making them for a baby shower and need to add a bear

Loved this idea so much that I wrote a post about fancy pumpkins and featured your pumpkin at http://penandpaperdesigns.com/2016/09/26/five-ways-to-make-your-pumpkins-beautiful/ Please let me know if you have any reservations about me featuring your pumpkin-making skills (I did include one image in my post). Thank you for making such awesome pumpkins!
Hello, what type of adhesive did you use to glue the felt and card stock to the pumpkins?
I used a glue gun.

Oh my goodness! Ok, you win. This is the cutest Halloween craft I’ve seen this year. I’m swooning!
These are so cute. I’m going to attempt to make one this week! Thanks 🙂
What is the approximate size of these pumpkins? Also, I love their skirts. Could you tell me where to purchase them?
Where did you get those adorable fold-down brown boots? They are so cute!!
Can you let me know the approx size of these pumpkins? Trying to decide how big to make the template on my printer! Thank you!
I’d say they’re medium size. At Michaels there were pumpkins smaller and larger than this one. Hope that helps.

I tried the links for the templates, but the pages are no longer available. Any ideas to help me get these three templates? We are having a woodland baby shower for my daughter and I would like to make these. Thanks in advance!

I would love to get the patterns for these but the links have expired. Can you help me get this patterns? These are adorable.
I too am looking for the templates but the link is not working. Any idea how I can get the patterns?
