DIY Pumpkin Luminaries

Fall is definitely my favorite season of the year. The amazing colors, scents of the season, and multitude of decorating options are endless.

The DIY Pumpkin Luminaries project came about when I was trying to think of fun ways to not only decorate for fall, but also to tell you about an amazing product, SunnyD. They are currently sponsoring a fantastic promotion, the Book Spree Program.

Not only can you turn the empty 64 oz SunnyD into Pumpkin Luminaries, you can also turn them into FREE books!

Go out and pick up some SunnyD at your local grocery store, I found mine at Giant Food Stores, and you can not only have a great upcycled fall decoration, but you can help provide K – 7th grade public, private and homeschool teachers with FREE books! In my book, that’s a win win for everyone!


This is the 9th year that SunnyD has been offering the Book Spree Program and getting up to 20 FREE books for teachers is simple. “Just collect SunnyD labels and send to your child’s teacher. Teachers will then send the labels into SunnyD to get free books. For every 20 labels received, SunnyD will donate 20 free books.”  

Pumpkin Luminaries Supplies

Making the Pumpkin Luminaries is simple, too. It would be a great project for kids and families.

Supplies needed:

  • empty 64 oz. SunnyD bottle
  •  orange crepe paper
  •  box cutter or exacto knife
  •  glue
  • foam brush
  • permanent markers

Use the box cutter (adults only) to cut the top off your empty 64 oz. SunnyD bottle. Let the bottle dry completely. Cut  the orange crepe paper into 11 strips 10 inches long.

Once the glue has dried, add a battery operated candle or light. Now you are ready to enjoy your new fall decorations.

Be sure to tell everyone you know about the simple steps needed to participate in the SunnyD Book Spree Program.

  • Step one: Clip and collect eligible SunnyD UPC labels.
  • Step two: Send UPC labels to a participating teacher.
  • Step three: Teachers will collect UPCs, fill out the entry form and mail both to SunnyD.
  • Step four: SunnyD sends books to participating classrooms (limit of 20 books/classroom).

SunnyD Free Books

Don’t Delay, we need to get FREE books into kid’s hands and the SunnyD Book Spree ends 11/30/2015. (Or while supplies last.)

So we want to know…will your DIY Pumpkin Luminaries have a scary or happy face? How many labels will you be collecting for the SunnyD Book Spree?
