Pumpkins are a big part of Halloween. Every year a lot of people like to decorate by carving or decorating their own pumpkin. Today I will teach you how to make your pumpkin the best in the patch. The first pumpkin you are going to see is....The Hungry Jack O' Lantern. This pumpkin is really cool looking. Anyway, this pumpkin is made up of a big pumpkin, a mini pumpkin, and a super mini pumpkin for the nose of the mini pumpkin. First, you have to take your mini pumpkin and carve the top of it off. Then, you carve the face. Next, we will work on the big pumpkin. So, you start carving the eyes. As you see in the picture leave some space for the eye pupils. For the nose you glue the top of the mini pumpkin on. Then, you carve a big enough hole for the mouth so the mini pumpkin can fit. But, before you put your mini pumpkin in you need to glue your super mini pumpkin on for the nose.
This next pumpkin is a pumpkin that can hold your candy! This pumpkin is very simple. To make this pumpkin you need to use black licorice, jellybeans gumdrops and a peanut shell. You can use green licorice for the hair. First, you need to carve the top of the pumpkin and throw the top away. I would prefer for you to scrub out all of the guts out of the pumpkin. Then, you can start to decorate. For the hair you can glue some green licorice on. Then, for the eyes you should use gumdrops and let it dry before adding any jellybeans on them. To make the nose you should use a part of a peanut shell to make the nose stand out. Then for the eyebrows and the outline of the mouth you should use black licorice. Lastly, you should glue the jellybeans inside the mouth outline. These are the steps to make a candy witch pumpkin!
