Bookish Halloween Pumpkins


One activity that I love in the fall is decorating pumpkins. Last year, I created a donut pumpkin inspired by If You Give a Dog a Donut by Laura Numeroff (see how I created my pumpkin here). This year, I decided to share some bookish pumpkins that I loved from Pinterest. Here are five of my favorite book-inspired pumpkins:

I love the book If You Give a Mouse a Cookie and this pumpkin represents it well! I love how the person who made this got creative and even made the body of the mouse.

  • Fancy Nancy from Pinterest

Fancy Nancy is one of the most fabulous picture book characters… so she makes an even more fabulous pumpkin! I love the use of the wig on this pumpkin and all of the accessories throughout the hair. Fancy Nancy would approve of this pumpkin!

I love all of the touches on this Tin Man pumpkin from everyday household items. I think what really drew me into this pumpkin was the shiny silver paint. It’s perfect for the Tin Man!

  • Pinkalicious from Pinterest

Pinkalicious is such a fun book and the person who created this pumpkin really captured the spirit of the book. From the tutu, to the wand, to the crown, this pumpkin is perfectly pink!

  • Don’t Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus! from Pinterest

The pigeon from books by Mo Willems is such a cute characters and this is such a cute pumpkin! This pumpkin actually looks very similar to the pigeon plush I bought at Kohl’s not too long ago. Like with some of the other pumpkins above, I like how the person who created this pumpkin thought bigger than just the pumpkin.

What book inspired pumpkin would you like to see?
