In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month being in October, I like to make pink pumpkins every year to show support in finding a cure for this terrible disease. I know too many people who have been greatly effected by Breast Cancer and I’m sure you do as well.

I would like to share with you a few of the pumpkins I have made so far. I will also explain how I made them and the materials I used so you can create your own pumpkins to help support in saving the ta-tas.

Pink Hope Pumpkin

HOPE Pumpkin – Materials I used:

A 9″ cream diorama craft pumpkin from Michael’s

Hot Glue Gun

Breast Cancer Ribbon (two spools)

Pink Ribbon for a Handmade Bow

HOPE White Wooden Craft Word

Martha Stewart: Pearl Craft Paint – Fruit Punch

Paint Brush

LED Tea Light

For the above HOPE pumpkin I started by painting the Wooden HOPE word Pink on the front and set aside to dry (I did three coats). I kept the pumpkin cream and hot glued strips of the Breast Cancer Ribbon vertically around the pumpkin. I  then put hot-glue on the HOPE sign on the edges and glued it to the inside of the pumpkin in the middle. I then made a Bow, or you can buy a pre-made pink bow and attach it to the top with hot glue. Last thing I did was place a LED Tea Light behind the HOPE sign.

White craft paint

Paint brush

Light Pink Ribbon or a Handmade Bow

Pink rinestone stickers

Other embellishments

For the Light Pink Pumpkin I started by painting the pumpkin white. When the paint dried I attached pink rhinestone stickers around the middle of the pumpkin. I also found glittery foam breast cancer stickers and put them between the rhinestone stickers. I then made a Bow, or you can buy a pre-made pink bow and attach it to the top with hot glue.

I hope you enjoyed my Pink Pumpkins and that they have inspired you to create your own Breast Cancer Awareness  Pumpkins!
