Simple Halloween Craft - Pom Pom Pumpkins, Ghosts and Bats
Posted Aug 26 2008 11:36pm
OK this is a relatively easy craft (and a really lousy photo)…my favorite kind; the craft, not the photo. I actually found this on the bag of orange and black poms poms I bought, oh three years ago, when my DS was two and completely incapable of crafting. A mother can always hope.
You need only felt. googley eyes and pom-poms to make some cute seasonal table accoutrements or decorations for your dining table too. For the bat, simply glue two black pom poms together and add googley eyes. Cut some wings in more or less a bat shape. There’s a nice pattern to follow here.
For a pumpkin simply use an orange pom pom and cut out eyes, nose and mouth out of felt. The ghost, which if you look at it could double as a snowman (keep it around for Christmas) is simply felt eyes and mouth and 3 pompoms on top of each other plus one on each side for arms.
So simple a child could do it…OK maybe not a 2-year-old!
