Spookify your space! Halloween is right around the corner. Grab a pumpkin—real, or craft—and get the kids busy decorating! No carving required.
What you'll need
Hunt up some items to glue on, or find some paint and come up with a colourful paint pattern. For my pumpkin, I chose to glue on some real leaves from my yard.
- Decorations (leaves, string, beads, etc.)
Wash your pumpkin and let it dry thoroughly.
Drizzle some glue randomly around the stem of your pumpkin and added some green glitter.
After your decorations dry, use gold paint to make drips over it all for a little shine. My pumpkin will remain inside the house, so that the rain and wind will not affect it.
Let’s see what you can create with a pumpkin and whatever decorations you might find in your home or yard. Share your creations on social media using #KickstartCreativityHfX!
