Mix and Match Pumpkin Faces

Jack-O-Lanterns are always the centerpiece of Halloween. Younger crafters can express themselves with their pumpkins by using these mix and match elements to create original designs.


Craft foam sheets
Double-sided tape
Sticky back Velcro


I Cut eyes, noses, mouths, and eyebrows. Before long, I had six fun faces — a pirate, a monster, a cat, a clown, a goofy face, and a traditional Jack-o-lantern.

Next, I cut some small pieces of the fuzzy side of some sticky back Velcro and put them on the pumpkin where I wanted the features to go. Then I put pieces of the hook side of the Velcro on the backs of all the facial features.

Look at the photos below to see the variations designed by Chicha and turn the kids loose to create their own combinations.
