It’s almost Halloween time! While carving Jack-o-lanterns is a classic activity, here is an alternative pumpkin craft. It’s quite simple and doesn’t require carving yet is very entertaining for the little ones. Pick up a small pumpkin at the nearby market and lets make a Pumpkin witch!

Step 1:
Draw scary arms and a witch hat. Cut them out. Now make an outline to duplicate each item (you have to have two witch hats, two left arms and two right arms).

Step 2:
Squeeze a fair amount of glu on one of your hats, glue a toothpick in the middle then cover with a second hat and press to make it stick together. Do the same with the arms.

Step 3:
Take gouache and paint the witch hat and scary arms. We painted the hat with black and the arms in green with red nails – what colors did you choose?

Step 4:
Now give that witch a face and paint her eyes,nose, and mouth on the pumpkin. Don’t use water for this one, because we want the paint to be very thick.

Step 5:
Force the sharp ends of the toothpicks into the pumpkin (if the pumpkin is too hard, make little cuts with the knife first). The witch has arms a hat now!

Step 6:
When the first layer of paint is dry, give her face more details if you like. We painted white teeth and a scary shine in her eyes.

It’s ready! Decorate your room for Halloween with a scary Pumpkin witch and some candles! – Yuliya
