What foods better represent this time of year than pumpkins and apples? Merge fall’s two favorite treats in this easy and creative craft. And best of all, no knives or carving tools required!
What you’ll need:
›› Small or medium-sized pumpkin
›› Apple green craft paint
›› Caramel-colored craft paint
›› Foam paintbrush
›› 3/4” x 12” wooden dowel
›› Coffee filter
›› Hot-glue gun
›› Remove the stem and clean the pumpkin of any dirt or debris.
›› Once the pumpkin is clean and dry, grab your paintbrush and use apple green-colored craft paint for the top 1/4 and a caramel-brown for the bottom 3/4 of the pumpkin. It may take a few coats to fully cover your pumpkin.
