Mason jar lids are used to create the goggles on these spray painted Minions. Pipe cleaners as hair and grommets for the overalls. The little design aspects and use of spray paint makes this a great looking but easy option for those of all abilities.
Painting creepy faces and messages is a great gut-free alternative to carving. This design uses free stencils that are available for printing. The stencils were applied to the pumpkin and then spray paint was used to paint the entire pumpkin. The spray paint fumes might be too much for little kids, but it is certainly an easier option than carving.
Shiny Silver Leaf
Real leaves were spray painted silver and then glued to the side of a black painted pumpkin. This design is an elegant display of two of autumns greatest things - crunchy leaves and pumpkins - and looks great as a fall or halloween decoration.
