Foam Dice Pumpkin Materials


Step 1

Paint the foam dice with acrylic craft paint. We painted one dice bright orange and the other one with burnt orange acrylic craft paint.

Foam Dice Pumpkin Step 1

Allow to dry completely.

We needed two coats of paint to cover the white dots on the dice.

Step 2

Measure a jumbo craft stick to 1 ¾” and 2 ½” sections at the ends. Cut with scissors, leaving the rounded ends intact.

Paint the craft stick stems with dark brown acrylic craft paint.

Allow to dry completely. If needed, add a second coat of brown paint.

Step 3

Apply a thin line of hot glue along the bottom cut edge of the craft stick stem. Attach the stem to the top center of the foam dice pumpkin. Push down gently into the foam until the hot glue cools and dries.

If you want to use craft glue instead, you will need to hold the stem on the dice until it dries.

Step 4

Gather the ribbons and twine together. Cut two 6” lengths of ribbons and twine.

Gently tie the ribbons together in a knot around the craft stick stem. Trim off long ends and cut notches into the the ends of the ribbon if desired.

Alternatively, you could tie a knot in the ribbon section and hot glue it to the pumpkin stem. Or tie the ribbons in a bow and glue to the stem. 

These toy dice can be used in other crafts, too, such as:
