Woodland Animal Pumpkins

 Last weekend when Alaina and Ruby stayed over, we made some cute pumpkin crafts. The girls love animals so this was perfect for them.

These were made using fake pumpkins.  One stayed orange, the other I got ready ahead of time by painting it gray. I also cut some pieces out of felt and cardstock.

Here's Ruby gluing some pieces together. She chose the orange pumpkin and was making it look like a fox.



Alaina took the gray pumpkin which was going to be a racoon.  

We glued together ears, tails, faces and feet.  Then we glued all those pieces onto the pumpkins to make our animals.



Here's Ruby with her fox.




And here is Alaina with her racoon.




Aren't they cute?

They look SO cute!!!
You should start doing fox and racoon pumpkins and selling them. They would be a hit!
