Make these happy pumpkin suncatchers to brighten up any room for fall and Halloween. Printable pumpkin templates are included for super easy crafting.
Choose from various sizes of pumpkins or jack-o'-lanterns from our printable templates below. Print out your chosen template on A4 or Letter size paper.
Place a sheet of A4 or Letter size clear transparency film on top of the pumpkin print-out.
Align the two sheets at the edges. Hold the sheets in place with tape or with paper clips.
Use a black permanent marker to trace the outlines of each pumpkin on the transparency film. Color inside the pumpkin's eyes and mouth.
Continue until you've traced the outlines of all the pumpkins on the template. Remember to shade inside the eyes and mouth.
Let the pumpkin outlines dry for a few minutes to avoid smudging the lines.
Remove the tape or paper clips. Carefully separate the template page from the transparency film.
Place some orange and green glass paint on your palette. You can get stained glass paints or window glass paints from craft stores or try making this homemade glass paint recipe.
Paint the pumpkins orange and the stems green.
Once done painting all the pumpkins, set the sheet aside to dry.
Once dry, cut out the pumpkins. The homemade glass paint is water-based, so if you painted your pumpkins with them, avoid handling the suncatchers with moist hands.
Use double-sided tape to stick the pumpkin suncatchers ontp glass windows or glass doors.
String several pumpkin suncatchers together and make them into a Halloween mobile.
