Teal pumpkins placed by your door are a symbol to let parents know that non-food (allergy free) goodies are available for trick or treater’s on Halloween. I wrote a post about the Teal Pumpkin Project last year, but this year I have joined some amazing bloggers who are also trying to raise food allergy awareness on Halloween. The Teal Pumpkin Project was born out of the need to keep 6 million children with food allergies safe on Halloween. Living with food allergies is a constant struggle. So together we can keep kids safe on Halloween. It’s easy to be part of the Teal Pumpkin Project movement and we have a ton of teal pumpkin ideas to inspire you.

My picks for Teal Pumpkin Project
Decorating the front porch
I decided to create more of my teal pumpkins ideas for Halloween this year. I started by making a cute teal pumpkin applique pillow by using my pattern from an earlier post. You can see how I made it there too. I used black and white buffalo check fabric for the pillow and then I added a teal pumpkin applique and orange bow. Super simple and perfect for the bench on the front porch.
I could not stop there since the fabric was on my cutting table I had to make some easy sew pumpkins with the leftover fabric. I used my pumpkin pattern from my Easy Sewing Fabric Pumpkins post.
Lanterns that I used as my prototype for my solar light lanterns on my trellis were just sitting on the porch of my studio in need of some love. So why not spray paint them and use them for outdoor decorating? I added a glass candle holder that I purchased from the Dollar Tree after I painted it with black spray paint too. Then added one of those cute fabric pumpkins and I tied a bow on it.

My sweet daughter, Olivia, made some super cute Teal Pumpkin Signs and teal door hangers. Checkout how she created them using her Cricut Maker, scrapbook paper, and paint.
Next, I wanted to share my friend Kerri’s hand-painted teal pumpkin door hanger. She makes it look so easy.
My friend Michelle from Our Crafty Mom shared how to turn a pumpkin into a beautiful Teal Welcome Succulent Pumpkin to greet her trick or treaters.
