Pumpkin full of kittens tutorial

When I saw this Pumpkin of Kitten’s on the cover of AllYou Magazine, I couldn’t resist it.  I have four cats of my own and love anything related to cats.  I thought it was  adorable and tried to duplicate it as best I could.

I’ve never been much into carving pumpkins although we carved several when my daughter was growing up.  And I have to say out of all the Pumpkins I’ve seen, I’ve never seen a Pumpkin of Kittens!  I think that’s why I love it so much, it’s original.

Here’s how to  make it:

What you will need:


1 large pumpkin

5 small pumpkins or foam pumpkins

Spray paint (cream & black)

Black card stock paper

Printed scrapbook paper

Pumpkin Kitty Ears Pattern

Ribbon in a variety of shapes and colors

Felt for the nose

Wire for the whiskers

Thumbtacks for the eyes

I didn’t have black thumbtacks so I spray painted the ones I had black.

Spray paint a few pumpkins cream color.

Cut out the Pumpkin ears pattern and scrapbook paper pattern and make ears.  You can glue the ears onto the Pumpkins or use a thumbtack.  I ended up doing both to hold them in place.

Cut wires for the whiskers.  I hot glued them to the Pumpkin then put the nose felt over it to cover the wire ends.

I made a triangle shape for the nose and printed it out then cut it out using black felt.  Just make the nose the size of a triangle.

Cut out the top of your Pumpkin and clean out all the seeds.  Roast the seeds if you want to!

Apply strips of ribbon.  I used glue and hot glue to hold them in place.

I filled up the pumpkin with paper towels and then added orange felt.  Then I added the Pumpkin kittens and placed the lid on top. You can also put Styrofoam in the Pumpkin and insert wires into the bottom of the Pumpkins and stick them into the Styrofoam.  I didn’t have any Styrofoam so I used paper towels instead.

    It's super cute but how do you make it not Roy? This would last two weeks where I live.
    • Depending on the temperature where you live will determine how long it will last, and if you keep it indoors or outdoors. :)
    • When I lived in AZ (90-100 degree weather in Oct) you carve the day of, and eat it the day after! I was so bummed that my efforts were wasted. Then I realized they had faux pumpkins you can carve. This way you can add to your decorations and save the real ones for pie! I’m going to try it with the kittens this year.
