A Short Video on How this Pumpkin Craft Comes Together

What You Need for this Craft

  • Marshmallows
  • Glue
  • Googly eyes (optional)
  • Pumpkin Template (download for free below!)

Print the template on either plain white paper or orange paper.

I personally like the look of orange paper. If you only have white, you could always have your little crafter color in the pumpkin before adding marshmallows.

If you want to add googly eyes, do it before gluing on the marshmallows!

Start by adding a line of glue to the rectangles on the pumpkin.

One by one, add the marshmallows. My son lined his up pretty uniformly but don’t feel like it has to look like that. Messy is cute!

Let the glue dry and then cut the pumpkin out.

You now have the sweetest pumpkin craft! These pumpkin mummies will be a hit with all ages.

      Hi Lynette. I think you may have just missed it. There is a box in the article titled “Download the Template” where you enter your email. Once you do that, you’ll receive a confirmation email (it lands in junk/promotions folders sometimes!). Click “confirm” and then you’ll be taken directly to the download. Please email us if you have any problem. I’d be happy to help further! Our email is thrivinghome (at) gmail (dot) com.

      Hi Leslie, I’m so sorry for the trouble! I see that you subscribed but haven’t confirmed your subscription. The email likely went to your junk/promotions folder from “Polly and Rachel”. It’s titled “Important: confirm your subscription”. Once you confirm, it will take you directly to the PDF. Please shoot us an email if that doesn’t work at thrivinghome (at) gmail (dot) com, and I’d be happy to help further!
