BA3S Make It Fun 3” Stryofoam Ball, Creatology White Foam Sheet-2mm, Foam Brush Hot Glue, Flat Brush, Craft Knife, Liner Brush, Paper Towels, Container for Water, Foam Plate


  1. Cut out four triangles for ears from the white craft foam. Hot glue two triangles together for a thicker ear. Cut a curve at the bottom of each triangle so that it will fit on pumpkin.
  2. Cut the styrofoam ball in half. Roll one of the halves on its side to make it more like a large tube. Make a triangular shape indention with your fingers on the side. This is the bottom of the snout. Make another indention from the bottom of snout around the end to the top of snout right under the nose.
  3. Basecoat the pumpkin, snout and the ears with Dove Gray. Allow to dry. Dry brush Licorice on all over the pumpkin and snout.
  4. Figure out the placement for the snout. Using the liner brush, paint a Licorice “U” shape for mouth. Make sure it is going under the snout so you can’t see the ends. Come in a little from the “U” shape and paint the inside of mouth Licorice. Allow it to dry.
  5. Paint Wicker White teeth and cut out triangles for teeth.from white craft foam. Hot glue the foam teeth into the bottom of the snout.
  6. Paint the nose, eyes and inside of ears with Licorice. Allow to dry. Paint the inside of eyes with Calico Red.
  7. Glue the ears and snout in place. Cut black pipe cleaner a little longer then the eyes and glue into place.
