Put on a Happy Face

Come on, we couldn't go a whole season without seeing this smile. Just like Jack—but a much easier toothless grin to create.

Supplies:

  • Black tissue paper
  • Scissors
  • Dry erase marker in a light color
  • Mod Podge
  • Foam brush


Instructions:
1. First, think about the expression you’d like your pumpkin to wear. Start by cutting three triangles (two for the eyes and a smaller one for the nose) out of the tissue paper, and then make a paper half-moon shape for the mouth. Carefully cut out the spots for the missing teeth.

2. Using the dry erase marker, draw the face as you'd like it to appear.

3. Dip the brush into the Mod Podge and apply to one side of each piece of tissue paper. Adhere to the spots on the pumpkin where you've made your marks.
