Make the Cutest ‘Bum’pkin on the Block

Written by Melissa Robertson
10 min diy bumpkin craft

Make this easy Fall DIY with items from the dollar store.

What better way to celebrate fall than a cute keepsake of your little one’s tushy? Using items found at your local dollar store, we have put together this simple DIY to kick off the fall season with the world’s cutest baby bum art.


Small canvas
Non-toxic paint
Paint brushes
Paint writer or marker
A sweet baby

Strip your baby and paint an even amount of orange paint across their bum. Press their bottom firmly on the middle of the canvas. Clean with wipes or a bath if necessary (our little guy got quite messy).



Now you have your ‘bum’pkin. I used the tip of a foam brush to make a green stem.




Now using a paint writer (we got a fabric paint one) or a marker write out your message. I have also done all my kids at once on a larger canvas and written : ‘Robertson’s ‘Bum’pkin Patch’. Don’t forget the year!



Even if you aren’t ‘crafty’ this DIY is so simple and cute it’s worth a little mess. The pictures alone made the clean up worth it!
