Wait! Don't throw those uncarved pumpkins away. We've got a simple way to recycle those gourds into a fun - and super easy - winter decoration.

Materials:

  • Three pumpkins of ascending sizes (large to small)
  • White paint
  • Black marker or paint
  • Black felt or cardboard
  • Toilet paper roll
  • A carrot
  • Glue

Instructions:

Stack and glue together the three pumpkins from large to small. When the glue is dry, paint the pumpkins white - if an adult is helping, spray paint might be easiest; for children, a few bottles of acrylics should do. When dry, your pumpkin stack should resemble a snowman, and you should feel free to get creative! Paint or draw eyes and a smile on the head. Glue the tip of a carrot in the center of the face for a real snowman-like nose. Finish off your Frosty the Snowpunkin' with a hat made from a toilet paper roll (painted black) and black cardboard for the brim.
