We’ve found a new place to doodle (and it isn’t on the walls!) What to do with all of those pumpkin seeds? We’ve found something even more popular than roasted pumpkin seeds in our house: super simple pumpkin seed art.

We’ve all been pulling out pens and have found a new place to doodle: on our pumpkin seeds! I also love the idea of projects for makers to create side-by-side. While the kids got colourful and full of whimsy, I kept my own palette all metallic solids: dipped and blocked. They’re just a fun doodle to just do for the sake of doing and a fun challenge for small fingers or to create a piece of art for your walls — your own or as a way to hold on to the precious makings of kids. Either way, I hope you’ll find a fun way to animate these seasonal seeds!
Gel Pens, dry pumpkin seeds
I don’t think I need to tell you what to do. Go wild: color away!
Picture Frame, Paper Backing, Adhesive*, Marking Pencil and Erasure
(*Use permanent glue. We used the hot glue gun to make these because this dries quickly but, you need to very carefully apply the glue to the backs of the seeds and placing these on the paper. If you have more time, then a slower drying glue may be easier for you to work with.)
– With a pencil, lightly mark dots for placement of the final seeds to create art.
– Adhere the pumpkin seed to the background paper.
– Adjoin frame and you’re ready!
