Halloween is a great time for those of us who love to craft and get creative with our seasonal décor. You can make decorative pumpkins, create haunted villages, craft spooky wreaths, and more. Today we’re showing you how our designer Meagan made these constellation pumpkin luminaries. Scroll down for the details!
Can you tell what these pumpkin designs are? If you thought zodiac signs, then you are right! The pumpkin template below includes constellations in a couple different sizes for Aries, Taurus, Gemini, Cancer, Scorpio, Libra, Virgo, Leo, Sagittarius, Capricorn, Aquarius, and Pisces. You could put just one constellation on your pumpkin or do a few of them on one.
