Hello Pinterest/Craft-aholics! This is Shirley over at Golden Dreemz guest posting for my great friend, Penelope. As she mentioned a couple of posts back, we are both addicted to Pinterest and plan to get together for a nerdy pin-aholics meetup one of these days. She also mentioned that my house is currently in the throws of a serious remodel, but that hasn't stopped me from getting my pin-on!
I just love the holidays and there are so many great ideas on Pinterest for Halloween and X-mas. So what does someone who can't really support decorating her house in the middle of a remodel decide to do? Decorate miniature pumpkins instead! They are much more manageable and I can just give them away after if my toddler would only let me.
This pin was originally the bright idea of Martha Stewart. I had no idea she had a funny bone. I mean look at those pumpkin faces! I combined that idea with this Pin and voila! Larry, Curly, and Moe were born. It was super easy. Let's get started:
|Qori gets his snack-on!|
3. Add the map tack eyes. They seem to look funnier if they align with the width of the mouth.
4. Take your spoon and scoop out the pumpkin guts and place them in your plastic bag.

5. Insert the fangs and adjust.
7. Stand back and admire your pumpkins!
So far, everyone who has seen these pumpkins have giggled at the sight. They are super easy and fun to make, especially if you have a little helper! Don't forget about those pumpkin guts! You can toast the seeds in the oven for yet another tasty Halloween snack that's more "human" approved.
