Materials Needed:

How to Make Paper Plate Pumpkins:

1. Draw a little pumpkin face on the front of the plate that will serve as a template for cutting. I had a little problem with the mouth as you can see. Good thing this won’t show when it’s done!

2. Paint the back side of your paper plate all over with orange paint. Your preschooler won’t object to helping with this part!

3. While that is drying, start to glitter up your black piece of paper. I used a spray adhesive and then let my little gal sprinkle the glitter on. If you don’t have spray adhesive, just smear glue all over your black paper and glitter it up the old fashioned way. Heck, you don’t even have to use glitter if you don’t want to.

4. Once the paint is dry, cut out your template you drew. If you have a skilled scissor user, let your little one do the cutting. My gal instantly goes for her hair when she is given scissors, so I did the cutting for this project.
