masquerading pumpkins

Pumpkins MasqueradingThe craft room was abuzz this weekend working on ideas for our block’s Halloween party. My oldest helped with this one; he cut out the Frankenstein template for me, minus the bolts… okay, so I had to cut it out again, but his version was adorable.

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.

Have fun!
