Dollar Store Wiggle Eye Pumpkin Craft

Grab those dollar store pumpkins and follow this DIY to making your own Wiggle Eye Pumpkin. It’s QUICK, EASY and on the CHEAP!

This project cost me a total of $2! Dollar Tree makes crafting and creating quick projects for the holidays so easy!

Here’s how you can make one of your own Wiggle Eye Pumpkins:

  • Dollar Store Pumpkin
  • Wiggle Eyes
  • Paint
  • Glue

This is a great project for little’s. If you are using hot glue, just use caution with little fingers. You can use any glue that dries fast though.

The steps to creating your Wiggle Eye Pumpkin is pretty straight forward. Dollar Tree has TONS of these carvable pumpkins, but you can go to any dollar store and get some different varieties. They are pretty easy to find if you don’t have a Dollar Tree locally.

First, you want to paint your pumpkin black. Or lime green. Or purple. Use your imagination here!

The wiggle eyes usually come in pack with a variety of sizes so it’s going to be easy to do the next step. There is no rhyme or reason – you just start gluing!!

Easy enough for any beginner crafter!


So cute, don’t you think?!

This is a great project for any kid’s or teen’s group that you are a part of it! The slowest part of the process is watching the paint dry 😉

What do you think? Are you going to grab some of your own and make a family of them? I am definitely headed to buy some more so I can make some lime green and purple ones!
