Owl Decorated Pumpkin

When we were making the flowers for Tiffany’s Painted Pinecone Flowers post, we noticed that the flowers looked a little like Owl Eyes…So once again, we started to think, what should we use to make an owl?  Well, we figured it out!  An OWL PUMPKIN…it’s a little too early to carve a fresh pumpkin so we decided to buy a artificial foam pumpkin!  This way we can keep it year after year too.


Here’s what we did:

We cut the pinecone to create the eye.  Then, we glued a googly eyes on the pinecone eyes we cut.

Next, we cut the tip of the pinecones; we thought they looked like the talons of the Owl.  Then, we searched the yard to find something that looked like an Owl’s beak.   We ended up finding a piece of wood from the wood chips in the planters.  We also found some bark from a tree to use for the ears of the Owl.

Now, it’s time to put everything together. We used a hot glue gun to add everything to the pumpkin. We also cut off the top of the pumpkin to add a plant to give it a little feathery look. My youngest daughter reminded me to add the ears… you can see them poking out of the plants pot.

We then placed the Owl pumpkin on the front porch with a few real pumpkins that we will be carving later, a bell of hay, and a floral arrangement.

 The porch is now ready for the Trick-or-Treaters.
