How to Make

  1. Print out the template, lay it onto the orange paper plate and cut the holes for the eyes out.
  2. Cut a strip of black card about 2 inches thick.
  3. Place this behind the orange plate so that you can see it behind the eye holes and place a small pencil mark either side where the strip sticks out.
  4. Glue the orange plate with eyeholes on to a black plate with the strip in the middle. Try not glue too close to the strip as you want to be able to move it freely.
  5. Use gold glitter glue to draw lines down the pumpkin.
  6. Once dry, stick two wiggle eyes onto the back card strip through the eyeholes of the orange plate.
  7. Draw on the rest of the features.
  8. Cut out and stick on the stalk.
  9. Take a pipe cleaner and shape it into a coil using a pencil and stick this behind the stalk using super tacky glue.
