No Mess Pumpkins DIY

This no mess pumpkin activity is a perfect afternoon craft for those busy little hands.


If you have 10-20 minutes to spare, some color coding labels, scissors, and leftover ribbon

you are good to go!




I bought two cute little pie pumpkins from Walmart-

I think they were around 2.88, each.  I just refuse to spend much

more than that for any pumpkin, when they are just going to be thrown out.









Although, this year I am seriously considering making some pumpkin pies from scratch.

These two little punk-ins might just get double duty this year! 






These Color coding labels were $1-I got home and realized there were 315 dots in each

package, do you think I went a little overboard?






For the pumpkin's mouth, I just cut the dots in half while they were still attached to the wrapping,

the removable adhesive makes them so easy to apply and remove.

I followed these same steps for the eyes, and eye brows.






I would suggest a light spraying of lacquer over these after you have decided on your design,

if you want the dots to stay securely in place, and if you are not going to be using the pumpkins for

baking or cooking.

However, they might just be plain fun to leave as is and let the little ones enjoy moving the dots

around, and really with 315 dots in a package, it could be quite interesting to see how these

turn out by Halloween!


Have a wonderful weekend!
