No Carve Pumpkin Faces

After making these pumpkin faces, I realized they look a lot like the annoying orange.   The actual idea came to me when I was brainstorming different ways to decorate a pumpkin without carving it.  I think these pumpkins came out pretty funny looking.  My kids tell me they look creepy.  I guess that's a good thing since they're for Halloween.

This craft is great for all ages, child and adult.  Also, it only requires 4 items: a mini pumpkin, glue stick, scissor, and magazine.  Brief instructions below.

Cut out a bunch of mouths, eyes, noses, etc from magazines.  I found catalogs and makeup advertisements had the best selection of faces.

Play around with different combinations to make silly or scarry faces.   Once you figure out the face you want to make, adhere the pieces with a glue stick to your pumpkin.  I found a glue stick works best because it doesn't make the paper wrinkle.  It also gives you a little time to move the pieces around before they dry.

What do you think, silly or creepy?  Both?
