How to Make Peekaboo Pumpkins

Courtesy of Layla Palmer

Hi Friends,

Create a spooktacular vignette of peeking pumpkins using miniature gourds and a variety of inexpensive bowls and lidded dishes.

Materials Needed:

3 to 5 miniature pumpkins
a mixture of 3 to 5 small bowls and lidded dishes
spray primer (if any of the dishes are not black or white)
black and/or white spray paint
googly eyes
craft glue

Collect Dishes
Pull together a grouping of small, inexpensive bowls or lidded dishes. Tip: Search flea markets and thrift stores for super cheap options with character.

Spray Primer
The idea is to paint all the dishes black or white, so use spray primer to coat any of the dishes that aren't either of those colors.

Once the spray primer is completely dry, use black and/or white spray paint to coat all of the primed surfaces.

Attach Eyes
Apply craft glue to the back of a pair of googly eyes (Image 1), then attach one set of googly eyes to each pumpkin (Image 2). Tip: Place the pumpkins in the dishes before you attach the eyes so you can make sure they're positioned correctly.

Difficult to believe a project so simple can look so good...
