How To Make It:

  1. Transfer the patterns onto pumpkins. Editor's Tip: Use a gray pumpkin to make an alien.
  2. Using a knife or carving tools, cut out the openings.
  3. Use a gouge to cut into the teeth, cutting just deep enough to make them "pearly-whites."
  4. Drill large holes into the pumpkins to receive the gourd antennae (for the left and center pumpkins) and the gourd nose (for the far-right pumpkin).
  5. Paint the outside of clear plastic ornaments in bright colors for eyeballs.
  6. Cut large white circles and smaller black circles from crafts foam for eyes.
  7. Glue the circles together and add red veins using a felt-tip marking pen.
  8. Hot-glue the eyes onto the painted eyeballs. Except for the one-eyed alien, hot-glue the assembled eyes in place.
  9. For the one-eyed alien, cut a circle in the front of the pumpkin and slip an eyeball in place.
  10. If desired, cut a tongue from pink crafts foam and slip it into a mouth.
