Halloween Pumpkins: Monster Style

Decorate a Monster Pumpkin

When we went pumpkin picking at my brother’s, the boys couldn’t help but pick a bunch of unripe, green pumpkins. 

When I asked if they’d like to decorate some pumpkins for inside, Henry said only the green ones.

So we decorated those.

And they ended up kind of monster-ish. [Really, anything can be a monster, right?]

We just used what we had on hand in our craft cupboard.

Some googly eyes [sticker ones], foam stickers, and some gems [also self-adhesive ones].

Monster Pumpkins!


A few pom poms got glued one, and lots and lots of feathers for hair and table decoration.

I set out glue in a dish with a cotton bud to swab over the pumpkin. George would have liked to paint the entire pumpkin in glue, I think!

Last year we made and entire family of pumpkin mummies that were so adorable for the season!
