Pumpkin Patch Art

One of my favorite crafts I look forward to this time of year with my kids is making Pumpkin Patch Art. It’s become a yearly tradition, along with our Apple and Fall Tree crafts. I felt like I had to get really creative this year because it’s our fourth year making pumpkin patch art, but we had a lot of fun coming up with something new and fun!

Supplies you will need:

  • green 12 x 12 cardstock paper
  • orange acrylic paint
  • brown acrylic paint
  • small balloon
    (We used a water balloon. Stretch it out really good before blowing it up.)
  • small paper plate
  • orange neon glitter glue (we received ours from our friends at Craftprojectideas.com)
  • green yarn
  • scissors
  • school glue
1. Pour some orange paint onto your small paper plate. Blow up your small balloon and place it onto your orange paint.

2. Use the small balloon to make circle prints all over your green cardstock paper to resemble pumpkins. You can make them in straight lines or scattered over the page. However you like them.


3. Put a small amount of brown acrylic paint onto your small paper plate. Use your finger to make prints at the top of your pumpkins for the pumpkin stems. Let your paint dry completely.

4. Once your paint is dry, use your orange neon glitter glue to add lines on your pumpkins to give them texture. The neon glitter glue dries raised so it’s perfect for adding texture and sparkle to the pumpkins. Let the glitter glue dry completely.


5. While your glitter glue is drying, cut small strands off of your green yarn for your pumpkins. This is such fun cutting practice for preschoolers. When the glitter glue is dry, add a dot of school under your pumpkin stem and add one of your small pieces of green yarn to your pumpkin. The green yarn acts as your pumpkin vine.

Here is my 4 year old’s completed pumpkin patch art:


Using a balloon turned out to be such a fun way to make pumpkin prints and the added textures of the glitter glue and yarn really makes the artwork so beautiful!
