Things you will need:
Grab another and slice into circles. Cut the circles in half to make a pair of ears...pretty simple huh?
Break a toothpick in tiny pieces and use to attach the carrot ear to the pumpkin...
To help attach the ear to the pumpkin easily, slice out a portion with a sharp knife. Do this on the opposite side as well.
Add your googly eyes with hot glue or any strong glue. Add mustache and mouths with a black sharpie.
I added lashes to my mommy pumpkin (me). I love wearing lashes so why not...I cut one lash in half and used it for both eyes. It really depends on how big the googly eyes are...I used hot glue to adhere it to the top of the eyes.
Tip: To rid hot glue strings-use a blow dryer on the hot setting to instantly melt away.
- For the smaller pumpkins (kids) place the two googly eyes really close together. This makes them appear cute and innocent. Place the adult pumpkins eyes a bit further apart.
- I used two different sizes of eyes for all of them. Again, it looks cuter.
- Before placing the eyes and ears, turn the curved stems towards each other. It shows endearment and body language...see above pic and below pic.
Enjoy & Have a BOO-teeeeful weekend!
