Halloween is such a fun time of year.  My boys are getting too old for trick-or-treating but every year I decorate my porch with pumpkins and fall decor and hand out candy just so I can see the kids all dressed up in their costumes.  I have one pumpkin that the kids are drawn to year after year…my adorable peek-a-boo pumpkin. It’s a fun kids Halloween craft!

How can this little guy not make you smile?  He reminds me of my middle child a.k.a. “Twin A”. LOL  He is mischievous and always looks like he could be getting into something…kind of like this peek-a-boo pumpkin looks.

1)  Plug in Versa-tool and allow it time to heat up. Use caution, tool get very hot!

2)  Use the heated Versa-tool to slice into 3/4 of the pumpkin top of the pumpkin.  Try not to cut the entire top off!  This will make it much easier to keep the eyes wedged in the front.

3)  Cut (2)  4-fingered hands out of black felt (No need to add a thumb because it would be hidden inside the pumpkin.  Diva Tip:  Use a piece of chalk to sketch out the hands before you cut them.

5)  Add the googly eyes.  Diva Tip:  Use the tip of the versa-tool to cut a slice in the lip of the top part of the pumpkin and the lip of the bottom half of the pumpkin.  This gives a nice groove for the eyes to sit in.
