Stacked designs are a fun way to make larger-than life displays for halloween. This one takes 3 pumpkins, and no carving at all. It's great for kids because they get to cut out the eyes and ears and fold paper plates - all things little ones can do. When it's done they'll be whoo'ing in celebration of the creation they helped design.
Guests will lose their heads over this comical rendition of Olaf. You will need a couple pumpkins for this guy, including small ones for his feet. The painting is minimal and clean, so you won't be doing much freehand to pull this off. Use stencils to create perfect circular buttons, eyes, and facial features. The indian corn makes for a great nose, don't you think?
This version of Olaf uses an oblong shaped gourd for the head, and brushed-on acrylic paints. Cushy poms make the buttons and you can't go wrong using real sticks for arms. As usual, black pipe cleaners simulate the hair. Scarf and orange consturction paper in a funnel shape finish him off with cheery bright colors.
