Simple Beaded Pumpkin Craft for Kids

Here’s a sweet little beaded pumpkin that even the littlest hands can make.

Beaded Pumpkin


  • green chenille stems (pipe cleaners)
  • orange beads


Prepare your chenille stems by folding in half and twisting to create a loop — this will be your stem. Fill both legs with beads, leaving a small piece of chenille stem empty at both ends. Twist the ends together and tuck inside the beads. Shape your pumpkin into a tall and skinny or short and plump shape!

Beaded Pumpkin Steps

This is a great activity for a home or classroom Halloween party, or to keep little hands busy during pumpkin carving time. My girls like to wear them as bracelets and decorate all the door knobs in the house! Happy Halloween!
