Quick craft tutorial - How to make Mini Neon Pumpkins!!

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.

Halloween craft ideas

Break off a little bit of fimo and roll into a stalk shape

Fimo ideas

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 :)
