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)
- 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.
