Cut-out Shapes Pumpkin Pictures
October 17th, 2010 by Craftylocks

We had such fun making lots of different pumpkin faces with cut out shapes.

Halloween is a great excuse for some great paper crafts for children. These pumpkin faces are lots of fun and easy to do. You just need some basic shapes. I also kept the colors really limited which you do not have to do, but I reckon it has turned out quite effective.

So the shapes you need to cut out are a basic pumpkin shape in orange, and a stalk in green. Then out of black and white paper cut some random mouth shapes, some odd teeth shapes, triangles, circles, and a few eye shapes.

Then hand over some glue to the children and see what pumpkin faces they create.

I missed visiting your site too Sara:-). Halloween is becoming popular in New Zealand – led mainly by shops and by crafty folk like us who just love any excuse to make something!! I bet you will be busy creating your usual beautiful things for Chanukah.

There you are! Missed you and so glad you’re back! tell me, do you celebrate Halloween in New Zealand? So glad it’s almost here, since it’s not a holiday we celebrate! Of course then it’s on to Turkeys….but I’ll be too busy getting ready for Chanukah (Dec 1) to notice! all the best

Hi Teresa, I hope you had a bit of fine weather! Some of the fun with this craft is that you can re-arrange the shapes a few times before gluing them down – we had a few laughs making some very funny faces.
Thanks
