Pumpkins masquerading

As a mom who hates the mess associated with carving pumpkins, I decided to create pumpkin masks with my little ones instead. Here's a quick pic and instructions. Happy crafting!

Here's what you need:

  • Halloween cookie cutter shapes (bat, owl and Frankenstein shown)
  • Black or orange ribbon
  • Rectangle hole punch (available at most any craft store)
  • Craft paper (fall and Halloween colors)
  • Pencil
  • Scissors
  • Double sided tape
  • Small pumpkin

I simply picked out a fun cookie cutter, the bat was my favorite, and traced the outline on a piece of craft paper. Once I had the outline, I cut out the shape, punched a rectangle hole on each side and inserted the ribbon tying a knot in each end. Finally I put a piece of double sided tape on the back of the mask and slipped it over my pumpkin pressing the mask in place.

Those are so cute!! Great way to decorate the pumpkin before you carve it too if you want to do both! I love it. :) We have ours sitting on the porch and they'd be even cuter with masks...and then we can take them off to carve them on Halloween!!
