Every Halloween my kids and I head to the pumpkin patch, it is one of our favorite Fall traditions. While there the kids each pick out small, individual pumpkins and a large pumpkin to carve. Because we have a dog who likes to steal our pumpkins, we tend to keep them in the house on our fireplace mantle or on top of our bookshelves, but I find that the carved pumpkin tends to smell and get soft after a few days inside–yuck. As a result I am always on the lookout for Easy Pumpkin Decorating Ideas and I love the idea of making pumpkin stickers.
These easy pumpkin stickers give you the same fun faces on your pumpkins without the hassle and it is a great craft for my craft loving girls to do.
Pumpkin Stickers (Faux Jack O’Lantern)
Materials: black duct tape, parchment paper, pumpkins
Tools: pencil, scissors
Draw Jack O’Lantern faces on the parchment paper.
Cover the drawing with black duct tape.
Flip over parchment paper. You can see the drawing through the parchment paper. Cut out the Jack O’Lantern face pieces using scissors.
Remove the parchment paper from the back of the face pieces and place on the pumpkins.
Have fun decorating!
