3rd Annual Trick Your Pumpkin Contest

A contest celebrating Halloween and Creativity
September 27th – October 24th / Winners Announced October 31st!

It’s time for Plaid’s annual Trick your Pumpkin contest! Simply decorate a pumpkin and submit a photo to be eligible to win great prizes. 

We want YOU to create a three-dimensional pumpkin using your favorite Plaid products – and there are no limits to what you can create!  All we ask is that the pumpkin be three-dimensional – this means that no flat pumpkins are allowed (the actual pumpkin body itself must be at least 1/8” thick). Possibilities include real pumpkins, craft pumpkins, paper mache, clay pots, wood, fabric or other surfaces. Use your imagination and Trick Your Pumpkin!

The contest runs from September 27th through October 24st. After the submission period ends, our panel of celebrity crafters Cathie & Steve, Amy Anderson and Rachel Faucett will narrow down the entries to the top twenty pumpkins. Then from October 26th – 28th we will open voting up to the public, so you can vote on your favorite pumpkin. The winning pumpkins will be announced on October 31st.
