  1. Sketch face ideas on scrap paper. Practice tracing over sketches with Painters.
  2. Refer to photo. Use Green Painters to paint face on Funkins pumpkin. Start in center using radiating lines & move outward, filling in. Leave an irregular edge, allowing some orange to show all around. Allow to dry.
  3. After green is dry, use tacky glue to attach wiggle eyes halfway down on Funkins pumpkin. Cut half circle eyelids from orange paper. Glue to top of each wiggle eye.
  4. Use pencil to draw nose, mouth and teeth onto Funkins pumpkin. Use black Painters to trace nose; use red Painters to trace mouth; and use yellow Painters to trace teeth.
  5. Measure & cut twenty 24" lengths of black yarn. Gather in center & bind with 2" length of yarn. Use tacky glue to attach bound area of yarn to top of head. Allow yarn to drape down sides of Funkins pumpkin.
  6. On work table, roll 12"x12" Halloween print paper into a cone, so 1 corner becomes point of the hat. Apply glue stick to overlapping edge for a 4" to 5" diameter opening. Note: press cone from inside to hold seam until it dries enough to let go. Trim paper.
  7. Put 1 hand up inside hat and use other to gently scrunch working from point down. Set aside.
  8. Cut irregular-shaped circle from 12"x12" black scrapbook paper. Place on Funkins pumpkin. Trim. Use tacky glue to attach brim to top of hair & head. Glue along edge of cone opening & place on top of brim. Wrap ribbon around base of cone & knot to one side. Secure knot with tacky glue.
