Peat Pot Pumpkin Lantern

Updated: Aug 14, 2023

I was just thinking how quickly Fall is approaching and now is the time to start creating your Fall treasures !

It’s always fun to add a variety of whimsical pumpkins throughout your home for Fall.

I simply love creating Pumpkins!

Especially whimsical ones like this cutie!

You really don't need alot of items to create it !


Here's what you will need for your Supplies


• Peat Pots

• a spindle or Candle stick

• Orange Paint

• Cinnamon

• Diamond Dust Glitter

• Acrylic spray

• Hot Glue


⬇️⬇️


You can get the Peat Pots at Walmart, Family Dollar, Feed stores and Amazon.


I took my Peat Pot and cut out a face for my pumpkin.


I then painted it Orange use whatever shade of orange you like .

You can even paint them a cream color too!



While it was still wet I sprinkled some cinnamon on it to give it that grunge look.


It also makes it look like Rusty tin .

I love using this technique!


I then went ahead and hot glued it to my Spindle.

It looks cute already !

I made a fun bow with some Rafia then glued it on .

You can also use some strips of material for your bow as well!

I used some of these fabulous mini pumpkins from my Fall potpourri.



Look how cute it is !

Once I was done I went ahead and gave it a light spray of sealer and sprinkled it with Diamond Dust glitter!



Look how adorable it is !


You can now put a battery operated Tea Light or like I did a string of battery operated Rice Lights !

I think the purple color gives him that added Whimsical flare!


I hope you give these a try !
