Halloween is almost upon us! The spookiest time of the year calls for equally spook-tacular craft ideas and Mamma Chia has a neat crafting trick that is quite the treat!

In the magical spirit of our annual Trick-or-Chia Pumpkin Carving Contest, we invite you to try this super fun, easy and delightful DIY pumpkin project with a colorful twist! 

What You’ll Need:

  • A pumpkin
  • White Paint
  • Assortment of colorful crayons
  • Super glue
  • Blow Dryer

Before You Begin: Make sure to protect your crafting area with newspaper or equivalent to prevent unwanted splatters!

Step 1: Paint your entire pumpkin (stem optional ) with a coat of white paint and let dry. While the paint is drying, remove all the wrappers from your crayons.

Step 2: At the top of your pumpkin, begin gluing the crayons one by one around the stem with the bottoms touching the stem and tips pointed outward. Because the surface is rounded, the crayons will be difficult to keep in place without some glue. Our recommendation is to alternate colors to create a rainbow effect, but feel free to get creative! Once your crayons completely circle the stem, let dry.

Step 3: Once the crayons are solidly glued in place, use your blow dryer with heat setting on high aimed over the crayons to cause them to gradually melt. Depending on how high your setting goes, the crayon wax can tend to splatter, so make sure to be careful!

Step 4: Ta-da! Your pumpkin will be dripping with wonderful color and ready to be shared with the world!

We hope you give it a try! Be sure to tag us in your photos, so we can enjoy your magical pumpkin creations!

What you need: 

  • Mamma Chia beverage caps
  • Magnets
  • Newspaper
  • Acrylic paints (any color you prefer)
  • Glitter (optional)
  • Paint brushes
  • Hot glue gun

Instructions: 

  1. Rinse your bottle caps of any remaining residue if not already done.
  2. Protect your surface with newspaper and begin painting your bottle caps however you desire. You will need to paint 2-3 layers on the caps so they are evenly coated, so be sure to let each layer dry completely before applying the next.
  3. Heat up your glue gun. Once warm attach the magnets to the back of the cap.
  4. After glue has cooled, place magnets anywhere you like and enjoy!
