No Carve Pumpkin - You can't eat this caramel apple pumpkin but it sure is fun to make. It's a pumpkin decorating idea you may not have thought of but it makes a great Halloween craft. #nocarvepumpkin #pumpkindecorating #halloweencraft #caramelapplepumpkin #pumpkins #fallcrafts

Nothing says fall like caramel apples, right? That’s why, when I was trying to come up with new ideas for my latest Suncoast View segment, I thought I’d try making a Caramel Apple Pumpkin. I’d already made a Unicorn Pumpkin, which is probably my cutest pumpkin ever! I’ve also made a Golden Snitch Harry Potter Pumpkin and Halloween is always more fun with Jack Skellington. See the other ideas I shared…

Like all my other pumpkins, this caramel apple pumpkin is super easy and inexpensive to make. Ready to get started?

What You’ll Need:

1 Foam Craft Pumpkin (I get mine from Dollar Tree)

Acrylic Paint – Apple Tart, Light Brown, White, Pink, Yellow (optional)

Black Permanent Marker

Wooden Dowel

Light Brown Craft Foam – This is for a pack of 10 but it’s cheaper to go to the craft store and buy just one

Mod Podge or other craft glue

Caramel Apple Pumpkin

Paint the pumpkin green and let it dry. You may need two coats. Once the green paint has dried, paint 3/4 of the pumpkin with light brown paint. Use a black marker to add eyes. Don’t worry if you mess up and have to correct it. You’ll just be painting over them on the inside anyway.

Fill in the eyes with white paint.

Next, use a black marker to draw the mouth and tongue, then paint the tongue pink.

Cutting foam to make the nuts on the caramel apple pumpkin

Cut light brown foam into small pieces that resemble broken nuts. I just cut a crooked strip off the edge, then cut that into smaller pieces.

Use Mod Podge to glue the nuts to the caramel apple pumpkin. I did a section at a time so the glue wouldn’t dry before I added the “nuts”.

Paint the stick yellow, poke it into the pumpkin and secure with hot glue.

Now you have a super cute caramel apple pumpkin! It makes perfect fall, or Halloween, decor.
