Materials Needed: 

  • Metallic Paint or glitters or spray paint (optional)
  • Newspaper to cover the work area
  • A tall clear jar or clear vase and leaves with different color’s of fall.
  • Small Pumpkins

Gather all the materials and put it in one place. Have the newspaper laid out and cover your work space area. If you have decided to paint your small pumpkins, do it over the newspaper to keep the paint off your working table. Now, add a pinch of glitters on top of the wet paint, just enough to make them sparkle. Let the paint dry overnight or for a few hours.

Grab your jar, add the leaves at the bottom of the jar (just in case the paint didn’t completely dry) add your pumpkins alternating the colors or not. Don’t forget to be creative! Moreover, this is easy enough to have your kids do it too.


Materials Needed:

  • Fall leaves and twigs
  • Tape and string or needle with string.
  • Tall clear vase
  • Optional: Gold spray paint or paint

Gather all the materials, the leaves, tape and string. If you are planning to make it look like the one on the bottom extreme portion of the picture. Have your leaves lined up on one straight line get the string and tape it at the back of each leaf and tie each string to a piece of stick, or a twig, or anything that can hold the leaves at the bottom of the jar or your vase.

You can also snap a tree branch with leaves intact, have it painted with gold and silver or not. Have them arranged beautifully in the vase you can also add a small pumpkin to accessorize your fall tree.


Materials Needed:

  • Pumpkins with different sizes
  • Spray paint or glitter or metallic paint
  • Newspaper
  • Glue if you will use the glitters

Spread the newspaper over your working area. Make sure that it’s large enough to cover the whole area where you will be spray painting the pumpkins. Spray the pumpkin or paint it accordingly. Now, coat the pumpkin until you reach the desired color and choose multiple metallic colors. Finally, let it dry over the newspaper.


Materials Needed:

  • Tall clear glass or vase
  • Glass stuffings ( leaves, cranberry, small pumpkins, flowers, etc. Except turkey)

Gather the materials needed like the tall glass, vase or fishbowl. Add the cranberry or any accessory that you want to be displayed inside the jar or the glass. Now, add water and leave a half inch from the tip of the glass. Add the teal light and you are all set, just repeat the steps.


Materials Needed:

  • Accessories like ribbons, leaves, etc.

Gather all the materials pumpkin, candle, and your carving tool or knife. Measure the candle over the pumpkin and have it traced using a pen or using the knife. Remove the portion where your candle will be inserted and should be deep enough to hold and balance your tall candle.

Or you can just buy a candle shaped like a pumpkin! Just kidding! It’ll be nice to display something that you actually made.
