Halloween Pumpkin House Tutorial

Hi there! In this week’s tutorial, we’re creating a cute pumpkin house!

Click the image below to watch the tutorial:


This project is perfect for those who prefer Halloween decorations that are cute, rather than spooky or scary. It only requires minimal carving, and you could even personalize it to look like your own home! Because it isn’t spooky, you can also leave it up all through Fall to Thanksgiving.

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1 hour


  • A Pumpkin (I used a fake one, but you could adapt it to use a real one)
  • Cutting tool (I used an X-acto knife – be SUPER careful! 🙂 )
  • Pinecones
  • Toothpicks
  • Black spanish moss
  • Card stock paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Wire
  • Hot glue
  • Permanent marker (in a color similar to the pumpkin)

Happy Halloween!

Let me know if you have questions 🙂

Here is a video clip of my version. Thanks for the idea. https://drive.google.com/file/d/116QZwDUwPVhY5D_rpHDbvMyHZI8xbacN/view?usp=drivesdk

I painted the shingles, made the roofline “straight”, printed scenery for the windows, put in a staircase of stacked popsicle sticks, and made a paper flag. For the doorknob I used a finishing nail that came with picture hanging hardware.
