This cute pumpkin is really easy to make and is a great decoration for your door or window. Make several with different faces and hang all over the entrance to greet trick or treaters!
What you'll need:
Mini paper plate
Orange acrylic craft paint
Yellow craft foam
Green craft foam
Brown craft foam
How to make it:
Place the paper plate upside down on your work surface and paint it orange. Set aside to dry and repeat with a second coat if needed.
Cut out facial shapes (triangles for eyes and a mouth with a few missing teeth) and glue to the plate.
Use scissors to trim the plate into a pumpkin-like shape. Do this by cutting a dip in the top where the stem would be and trim the bottom to flatten it a bit.
Cut two simple oval-shaped leaves from green craft foam and glue to back of the plate at the top of the pumpkin.
Cut a simple rectangular stem from brown craft foam and glue to the back of the plate, between the leaves.
