Scary Jack-O-Lantern Eating Smaller Pumpkins
Ages school-age

No need to be an expert carver. This clever front-yard decoration gets its good looks from simple, easy-to-find props. An old shirt, glove, and wire coat hanger help this hungry fellow devour his skewer of horror d'oeuvres.

What you'll need

  • 1 large pumpkin
  • 3 mini pumpkins
  • Carving tools
  • Used work glove
  • Old shirt
  • Leaves
  • Wire hanger
  • Rock
  • Skewer
  • Black permanent marker

How to make it

  1. Carve a pumpkin with an extra-large mouth.

  2. Stuff a work glove and one sleeve of an old shirt with leaves.

  3. Bend a support for the arm and hand from a wire hanger. Fit one end into the glove and feed the opposite end through the sleeve.

  4. Sit the pumpkin on the shirt. Brace the arm from behind with a rock and cover the rest of the shirt with leaves.

  5. Push a skewer through three mini pumpkins. Draw a face on each with black permanent marker, then set the skewer in place.
