Jack-o-Lantern Wreath {CRAFT}

One more Halloween craft...completed BEFORE Halloween!  Go, me!!!

I picked up a package of foam pumpkins (8 count) in the Target dollar spot a few weeks ago. 

I let the girls sort through the button bucket to find eyes.  (I pulled a couple of black buttons to illustrate the concept to them...I thought it was funny they picked white button eyes for three of the four pumpkins.)  [The fourth pumpkin went to work with Daddy.]

I used some scrap green foam for the leaf, and some black felt for mouths.

The girls glued on the notions, and I love how the pumpkins all have such different expressions.

I bought a 12" grapevine wreath, and I tied the pumpkins to it (using a strip of tape on the back and some yarn).  I added some polka-dot ribbon to finish it off.

Viola!  A cute addition to the mantle...done mostly by the girls...for about $3!

I'm linking up with Charlene at Adventures-in-Mommy-Land for "Hey, Mom! Look What I Did!"  Check out her fantastic weekly link-up for so many great crafty and educational ideas!

So I want to ask you - do they do the scissors bits by themselves?

Those scissors make me so nervous!!!

I love this! We have some foam pumpkins that the kids are going to make at a Halloween playdate. I think I'll have the girls make a couple of extras and steal your idea. I love how your crafts are easy on the eyes AND the wallet! :)
