How to Make It

  1. Paint the dowel black; let dry.
  2. Trace a leaf pattern onto the green crafts foam; cut out.
  3. Cut slits in the center of the leaves.
  4. Using the photograph as a guide, draw a face onto the flat side of one plate with a black permanent marking pen; let dry.
  5. Hold the face plate and a plain plate with rims together.
  6. Using a hole punch, evenly space holes around the rims through both plates.
  7. Place a few dry beans and a few jingle bells in the gap between the plates and lay the dowel through the center of the plates, allowing a short end to stick out the top for a pumpkin stem and a large amount to stick out the bottom for a handle.
  8. Lace yarn through the holes to hold the two plates together.
  9. Place the leaves on the dowel through the slits and hot-glue in place.
