Pumpkin Buddies - Easy Halloween Project

>>  9/25/2011

Today I enjoyed playing with pumpkins. I painted faces on them, made accessories and played some stages. That was a fun. This Halloween project has a little of carving work. The main tool for it is a CD marker.

See more Halloween projects on my page

The faces idea is inspired by paintings of www.spookyhollow.net

To make the pumpkin buddies you will need:
1. A pumpkin itself. Pick up a couple of nice pimpkins you think they are suitable for the project. Decide on pumpkins of different shapes and colours.

2. CD/DVD marker  to draw faces. I prefer to use a CD marker because it does not flow out to a smooth surface of pumpkin. A black one will be perfect.

3. A thai knife or a sharp knife (a kind of orange knives) to carve eyes details.

4. You also might need some accessories for you pumpkin buddies to give them a complete look. Continue reading the project description and you will get what kind of accessories I mean.


Before drawing faces with a CD marker scratch your design with a toothpick or a pen. Now you are positive about the lines you are going to draw. Remember that a CD marker is hard to remove. 

Hooded Pumpkin Buddy

Use a curved pumpkin for the guy in a hood.

To make eyes remove pumpkin skin for the white of the eyes. Draw out the eyes and the skin around. Draw an appropriate grin.

To complete a look of the hooded pumpkin attach a pompon to the hood. A baby pumpkin works well for it.

Goody Pumpkin

I found the dragonfly dead at my balcony

I called him Goody.

For this cute face I have chosen a white pumpkin.  This sort of pumpkins has a very hard skin. I was unable to cut it! So let use our marker and give it an emotion.

I found a dead dragonfly in my home veranda. Think that was the best decoration for my little friend.

Top Hatted Pumpkin

The hat is made of a magazine advertisement

What does a man make to be a gentleman? You are right if say it's watches and a top hat.

I made the top hat from a magazine advertisement. You  will quickly find the instruction for the hat if google a bit.

The most important thing for the pumpkin buddy is fixing the hat. I'll tell you a trick. Insert a toothpick into the pumpkin head and hang the hat on it.  The toothpick will prevent the hat falling down.

Cute Halloween pumpkins buddies. Easy to make. Fun to be with.

YOU ARE DONE!  What I love about all these pumpkins is that they are long-play pumpkin crafts.

Enjoy the Halloween crafting! And please visit me often :))
