How to Make It

Note: If you are planning this activity for a party, make multiple pumpkins, facial features, and hats. Then let your guests assemble their pumpkins.

1. Paint the artificial pumpkins in desired colors; let dry.

2. Cut out a variety of eye, nose, and mouth pieces from assorted felt and cardstock. Adhere the layers together using fabric glue. Add gems or pom-poms for pupils.

3. Hot-glue fabric dots to the backs of the facial features.

4. Hot-glue fabric dots to the pumpkins -- in locations that lend themselves to face designs.

5. To make a cone-shape hat, trace a circle (about the size of a salad plate) on felt. Cut out the circle, then cut it in half. Roll one half into a cone shape, and secure the edges with fabric glue. Decorate with assorted ribbon and trim.
