Pinterest had some interesting sites about ideas for pumpkins. One of my favorites was using buttons glued to pumpkins to write a word and adding a ribbon. So simple! Something that Riley and Julia could both do. So I got the materials:
2 - large pumpkins $3.88 each
1 - roll of black polka dot ribbon $2
1 - Elmer's glue (already had)
tons of little buttons $2
1 - can of hairspray (already had)
Total cost was around $10
1 - Clean pumpkin.
2 - Print out the letters to the word BOO on Word using font I wanted. Cut out the letters and trace them with pencil on the pumpkin in the location where I wanted them.
3 - Fill bowls with tons of little black buttons. Put glue where I want the buttons. Let the girls decorate them!
4 - Let them dry with words facing up. Then spray with hairspray to help adhere letter to pumpkin no matter what the weather might do outside!
5 - Hammer in a nail through the bow to keep it from blowing away outside.
6 - Place on top of planters outside to decorate the walkway.
So easy!! The girls LOVED it and were so proud of their creations.
