How to Make

  1. Clean your pumpkin with soapy water and dry thoroughly.
  2. Use a sponge paint dabber to cover the pumpkin in white acrylic paint. You may need a few coats to cover the pumpkin evenly. Allow to dry.
  3. Use a sponge paint dabber to cover the pumpkin in green acrylic paint. Allow to dry.
  4. Use a sponge paint dabber to cover the pumpkin in green pearlized acrylic paint. It’s alright if it’s a bit patchy as this adds to the effect! Allow to dry.
  5. Stick on two Jumbo Wiggle Eyes. To stick well to the pumpkin’s surface, use some extra glue.
  6. For the witch’s wart, colour in a wiggle eye with a purple deco pen and when dry to the touch stick it to the pumpkin’s cheek with some glue.
  7. For the witch’s teeth, cut some small rectangles from a polystyrene sheet and stick them on in a row using the glue. Alternatively, you can use pieces of white card for your teeth.
  8. For the witch’s hat, download the witch’s hat template and cut out the shapes. Draw around the shapes onto some felt and cut them out with scissors.
  9. Make a cross in the middle of the felt circle. You can do this by folding the circle in half and snipping a slit in the middle with your scissors, then folding it in half along that snip line and snipping another slit, as indicated on the template.
  10. Place some double-sided tape to one of the straight edges of the fan-shaped felt piece. Remove the backing from the tape and stick the other straight edge to the sticky tape to make a cone shape.
  11. Stick the cone-shape felt piece through the slits you made in the circle-shape felt piece to finish your hat.
  12. Place the hat over the pumpkin stalk. You can use double-sided tape to stick it down more securely.
