This Spiderman pumpkin will save the day when you’re looking for fun Halloween crafts! The kids will have a blast turning a plain pumpkin into their favorite superhero!
I love this time of year because I’m always trying to come up with cute pumpkin ideas for Halloween.
I’ve made everything from unicorn pumpkins to melted crayon pumpkins and now I’ve made so many that every year it gets a little harder to come up with new ones! (Scroll to the end of the post to see my complete list of pumpkin tutorials)
One thing I realized though was that I don’t have any superhero pumpkins! Since easy crafts are my favorite, I decided that a Spiderman pumpkin would be the simplest to make. Plus, any kid that loves superheroes probably has Spiderman at the top of their list!
Superhero fans will want to check out these cool Spiderman facemasks too!
The beauty of this craft is that you really don’t need much. I always start with styrofoam craft pumpkins from Dollar Tree.
I totally stock up every year, though everyone seems to be discovering them now because they sell out earlier and earlier (as of yesterday, two of the Dollar Trees near me were out).You can find them on Amazon too…they’re just a little cheaper at Dollar Tree.
After that, you’ll just need some paint and a black marker and you’re totally good to go!
- Start by painting your pumpkin red. You may need 2-3 coats but you should give it about 20 minutes in between each coat before adding more.
- Draw the eyes. I suggest you start with a pencil. I did it with the marker but made a couple mistakes that I had to cover up. It wasn't hard but I did find myself wishing I'd started with a pencil! Fill in the middle of the eye with white paint.
- Fill in the outer part of the eye with black paint.
- Once the black paint is dry, start drawing the "web" on Spiderman's head with the black marker.
- Continue to add more lines going towards the back of the head, connecting them together with smaller lines.
- Keep adding to the spiderweb until you reach the back of the pumpkin.
I have to admit, I’m pretty happy with how my first ever superhero turned out! It was so easy too! My kids may love trick-or-treating the most but my favorite Halloween activity is definitely the pumpkin decorating!
Now that I’ve made a Spiderman pumpkin, who do you think I should make next? Ironman? Batman? There are so many to choose from!
