DIY Mini Pumpkin Place Setting

Mini Pumpkin Place Settings

This is a super simple little table setting for you to use through the Autumn season, when pumpkins, even these gorgeous mini ones, are easy to find in most food stores. I love how they look set up with a simple black and white card, alongside wood and paper, as well as some pops of gold. And it’s using the spray paint I bought for the gold letter magnets I did in July, so it didn’t even require me to buy new supplies besides the pumpkins – always a plus in my book. Here’s how it goes.

Supplies

  • Mini pumpkins
  • Gold spray paint
  • A sharp knife
  • Black card
  • Scissors
  • White marker
  1. Take your pumpkins and spray paint into a well-ventilated area – I went in my back yard, which is always the best bet – and cover the area you’re working in.
  2. Spray the pumpkins with one coat of paint, leaving to dry for between 45 and 60 minutes, depending on the individual spray’s instructions.
  3. Use a sharp knife (be very careful) and make a slit on the top of each pumpkin, about a third of the way back.
  4. Cut a couple of small rectangles out of the black card (I used a credit card as a template) and write your names on with a white marker.
  5. Push the card into the slits on the pumpkins and display on your table.
