>Tired of Carving? Make a Happy Aunt Hattie Pumpkin


Use creativity and pretty accessories to turn a plain pumpkin into a wacky character named “Aunt Hattie.”

How To Make It:

For an instant nose, choose a pumpkin with a long stem. Place the pumpkin on its side.

Carve a small slit below the stem to insert wax lips.

Push two post earrings into the pumpkin for the eyes.

Keeping the eyeglasses folded, set them in place and mark a dot at each temple. At each dot, cut a slit large enough to slip the eyeglasses arms into the pumpkin.

Use long pins to secure chandelier crystals (or crystal beads from crafts stores) for easy earrings.

Top the pumpkin with a lampshade that fits the shape. Use hot glue to decorate the lampshade with costume jewelry pins and beaded trim.

Ta-da!! You’re done and isn’t she cute??
