Our Christmas Porch decor this year features a Pumpkin Snowman! He is quite the conversation piece and a great way to repurpose those fall pumpkins which are still good.

How To Make A Pumpkin Snowman
I recommend planning ahead so that you can have three properly sized pumpkins to create a snowman after fall. My Pumpkin Snowman was not pre-planned so his sizing could be a little better but I’m happy with the little fella as he is.
- Three properly sized uncut pumpkins
- White paint
We have a can of white exterior paint left over from our Porch Makeover project last spring. I grabbed a paint brush, set up a work space in the garage because it was raining out and got busy painting pumpkins. Such an easy task and kind of fun too. I cut the pumpkin stems off and saved them. FYI, those pumpkin stems were hard to cut!
You can see two of the three pumpkins which make our snowman from our fall decor. As long as you do not carve the pumpkin it will keep pretty well. Once you cut it, the rotting process begins.
Our little repurposed pumpkin snowman greets our guests snuggled up next to his Believe sign. He believes in Santa Claus!
My daughter gifted me the potted pine a few years ago when she came home for Christmas. It is one of those from the grocery store and began very small. I repotted it into a larger pot and keep it watered with my Eggshell Water.
Our Christmas porch decor is simply a warm welcome by a couple of Snowmen which are simple easy DIY projects anyone can do.
