1. Using the photo for ideas, draw a door and windows on the pumpkin. Cut out a circular shape from the bottom of pumpkin. Scoop out the insides. Cut out the shapes.

2. From craft foam, cut rectangular shutters with one rounded corner. Draw shutter lines with a marking pen. Glue shutters by window openings.

3. To make critters, glue nuts together. Use half a walnut shell with an almond to make the door critter. Use allspice for eyes and noses. Draw details with marking pen.
