DIY Message Pumpkin Party Favor

  Back to DIY Projects

Thank your guests with a festive DIY Message Pumpkin Party Favor and you will definitely receive an invite to next weekend’s soiree.

  • Small pumpkins (1 per guest)
  • Spray or paint-on adhesive – choose 1-3 colors for contrast
  • Newspaper for surface
  • Painter’s tape
  • Sponge brush
  • Metallic marker or pen 


Use newspaper to cover workspace. Cover pumpkin stems with painter’s tape. Spray body of pumpkins with paint color of your choice (we used matte white paint). Let dry completely.

Remove tape from stems and spray the stem with a contrasting color (we used gold metallic paint). Let dry completely.

Write a message on each pumpkin with the metallic marker or pen – either a festive message, such as “Cheers,” or the name of each guest.

Place the pumpkin at the guest’s seat in place of place cards and as a favor they can take home at the end of the party!
