It's Craftastic! Polymer Clay Pumpkins

Posted: Updated:
Orange polymer clay
Green polymer clay
A small stick, snipped into short pieces
Wire, toothpick, or pin
Varnish (optional)
A clean, flat workspace
  • Prepare a clean work surface by taping a sheet of wax paper to a desk or table.
  • Remove a piece of orange clay from the package and warm it in your hands, rolling it into a ball.
  • Gently press the ball onto a flat surface and place a stick in the top.
  • Use a wire to add indentions to the sides of the pumpkin.
  • Smooth the fingerprints on the surface of the pumpkin shape.
  • Roll a thin snake of green clay with pointed ends. Curl the snake around itself to form a vine. Press the vine onto the top of the pumpkin.
  • Sculpt leaves by rolling a small ball of green clay, then rolling just one side to create a teardrop shape. Press a pin or wire into the clay to make lines on the leaf shape.
  • Add leaves and additional details as desired.
  • Bake the pumpkin according to the directions on the package of clay you're using.
  • Remove pumpkin from oven and allow to cool for about 10 minutes.
  • If you'd like a shiny finish and a more durable sculpture, varnish your pumpkin with a water-based sealant.
