This Easy Pumpkin Keg Is Perfect For Your Halloween Bash


This is one Halloween DIY you’re sure to enjoy: a pumpkin keg! Not only is a pumpkin keg easy to make, but it will look cute to have on display at a Halloween party.

“Today” posted a video that will walk you through the simple steps to bring this pumpkin keg to life. (And there are plenty of other tutorials online as well, like this one from No Spoon Necessary!)

You simply cut a hole in the top of the pumpkin and scoop out the seeds and guts to hollow out the insides. (It should be as bare and empty as possible inside before it holds liquid.) Then simply use an apple corer or a knife to create a circle for the keg tap. Make a hole that’s just big enough to fit the tap, as you don’t want to let liquid escape.

And there you have it. It’s as easy as that. Watch how it’s done here:

You can purchase a kit with a tap as well as a coring tool that make a hole the exact size you need on Amazon for $17.99.


Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can create pumpkin kegs for the remainder of the fall season and then do the same thing with a watermelon once summer rolls around!

The best part of hollowing out your pumpkin is deciding what to fill it with—there are just so many delicious concoctions to choose from! You might prefer an adult beverage, such as red sangria, or opt for a kid-friendly version of spiced cider punch. Decisions, decisions…

Creating a keg isn’t the only way you can use pumpkins as functional decor at a fall party, either. For example, Everyday Dishes offers a tutorial for turning a pumpkin into an ice chest. Simply core out the pumpkin, add ice and you’re done.

Now you’re prepared to throw the very best fall parties. Enjoy!
