Our DIY kids’ Halloween centerpiece is both a trick and a treat! These friendly pumpkin monsters have a secret — their eyes are actually lollipops kids (and other party guests) can treat themselves to. Get all the how-tos below and be prepared for some extremely happy ghouls!
- 1 large pumpkin
- 1 small pumpkin
- Turquoise construction paper
- Elmer’s Painters paint markers (in black and white)
- White lollipops
- Elmer’s CraftBond Glue Spots
- Power drill (or you can use a wood skewer)
- Green spray paint
- Purple spray paint
- Black construction paper
- White construction paper
Step 1: Cut a turquoise circle from a piece of construction paper slightly smaller than the size of your lollipop.
Step 2: Use a black paint marker to draw an eye in the middle of the turquoise circle, then draw white accent dots on the outer rim of the circle. Tip: Allow the black “pupil” of your eye to dry for about three minutes before adding white dots.
Step 3: Affix an eye on each lollipop using glue spots.
Step 4: Drill holes on either side of the pumpkin, spray paint and allow to dry for at least an hour. Make a construction paper mouth and affix to pumpkin with glue spots.
Step 5: Stick a lollipop in each hole and you’re done!Print
