Materials 1 large pumpkin Black paint + brush Printer + paper Scissors Orange, black + white felt Black yarn Glue gun 2 clementines

Directions 1. To make a tail, paint stem of pumpkin black. Let dry.

2. Meanwhile, download our mask template HERE, print it and assemble according to instructions on the template.

3. Cut 2 pieces of yarn long enough to fit around the pumpkin. Loop each piece through a hole in the mask so yarn becomes doubled. Position mask on the front of the pumpkin and tie yarn at the back to secure.

4. To create stripes, cut long triangles of black felt and affix them to the sides of the pumpkin with hot glue.

5. To make paws, stick 3 small triangles of black felt to clementines with hot glue. Affix paws to the base of the pumpkin with hot glue.
