I have to admit to absolute childish excitement when I came across these polystyrene pumpkin shapes just in time for halloween...so much crafty potential! After a couple of woeful attempts at decoupage (I just cant seem to get it right) and a disappointing experiment with glitter (more on the carpet than the pumpkin) I decided to keep it simple and make some lovely little colourful characters.
Quick disclaimer. I do not have children, but I defend my right to craft as though I do.
You will need:
Polystyrene Pumpkins (you can grab some or Ebay or your nearest Hobbycraft)
To start with, paint your pumpkin in whichever colour you choose!
Once dry, glue on your googly eyes
Break off a little bit of fimo and roll into a stalk shape
Bake your stalks and glue to the top of the pumpkin! Admittedly, in this case I didn't really have the patience for baking, so simply squished the stalks to the top. It depends how lazy you are, and how long you want your pumpkin to last!
Make a bunch of them, because they are cute as :)
Any other cunning ideas of how to decorate these little guys? We'd love to see what you come up with! Feel free to share to @Makerlycrafts or join and post to our FB group!
