Not so Spooky Spooktacular Pumpkins!

Okay, so maybe they aren't very spooky...but they were fun; as fun could be!

What you will need in addition to the photo's list:

White pen, chalk or crayon
brown crayon
Exacto knife and a good blade
Office stapler and staples

First, draw a pumpkin.  If you are going to make multiple, staple that picture to a number of pages of the same paper.  (We used orange construction paper) and then cut out with a pair of scissors.  Now you have a bunch of pumpkins!

Draw in the lines with white pen, chalk or crayon, then color the stem with a brown crayon.  You can even go back over the white lines with the brown crayon.

Picture doesn't show that step...but you get my drift.)

Next, take some squares of black construction paper and draw some scary, funny, or happy teeth.  I found that using an Exacto knife was the best route for this step.  I was able to get some really funky teeth with the Exacto blade....and it went so much faster than scissors.

You could do the same as with the pumpkins to get multiples of the same mouth.  That would save time. too.

Next, cut a strip of black construction paper and cut out triangles with your scissors all the way down the strip.  They don't need to be perfect and you don't have to just do triangles.  

Next, present all the pieces, get a pumpkin for yourself and let the fun begin!

If you want to add some more fun, add some glitter, halloween stickers, and maybe even some cutout spiders!  You can do so much with this craft.

Oh what fun they are!  If you don't feel comfortable with your drawing skills or don't have any fake fall leaves, I've created three printables which can be cut out.  All you would need then are the buttons and glue.

I hope you have as much fun as we did making this craft.  Here are a few shots of what G and I created (I really only made one).

Poor guy...

I like the eyebrows on this fella.

Enjoy and until next time...
