Happy Thursday! It’s day four of DIY Halloween week, and I have to say…I feel a little bit like I’m cheating for today’s DIY because this project isn’t just for Halloween…It works for Thanksgiving and the fall season as well.

Make a batch of these cute molded pumpkins for pretty much anything you can think of:  cupcake toppers, drink stirrers, cork toppers, etc. They would even look cute on the table, poking out of a floral centerpiece or planter.

You can visit One Charming Party for the full tutorial, but here’s the gist…

Make This: Eleven Halloween DIYs to Try Before October 31st | Paper & Stitch

I saw these over on One Charming Party and I think they’re adorable! I’m so excited to try the technique with all of my candy/chocolate/silicone molds. My daughter is having a superhero art party this weekend and I’m having the girls make clay necklaces…so now I’m going to use your technique with my lightening bolt mold for the center of their bead necklaces. I think it will be fabulous and I know the girls will all beg to wear them to school on Monday. Thanks for the inspiration!

Lovely!! I just bought a brick of clay and must try using a mold as I’m not very good yet at smoothing out the clay.

Thanks Jamie. Yep! They’d work for a lot of different things…And actually, I don’t think I mentioned it in the post, but they would be cute for place card holders for Thanksgiving dinner or a Halloween party (if you cut a slit in the top) too.


These are fantastic and so easy to make! I could definitely see using these in several ways! Thanks for sharing!



Thanks Natalia. And thanks Chelsea. 🙂 I think the little succulent decoration is my favorite option.


Woaaaah I love these! Especially as the bottle stoppers and in the little succulent. So cute!

Thanks Sarah. 🙂


I love it! Such a cute way to add Fall to your house. Thanks for sharing 😀


I agree with you Diana. It would be perfect for a Thanksgiving gift with a bottle of wine. By the way, I just checked out your blog and those chocolate peanut butter cupcakes look delicious.


I love the idea of using these as cork toppers! They’d work great for dressing up a Thanksgiving housewarming gift!
