Mini-Pumpkin Vampire for Halloween

It's fall again, and Halloween is just around the corner. I decided not to go crazy making too many Halloween decorations this year, but I saw the idea for this cute mini pumpkin vampire on Martha Stewart's web site, and decided to give it a try. Mostly because it looked so easy, and it was!

To make this project you will need:

  • Mini pumpkin
  • Plastic vampire fangs
  • Colored metal brads
  • Small paring knife

This project is super easy. All you have to do is use the small paring knife to cut out a hole to fit the vampire teeth. You don't even have to scoop out the insides of the pumpkin.

After you have cut the hole for the mouth and inserted the fangs, it is time to add the eyes. I used colored metal brads that you can buy for scrapbooking projects. I just pushed them into place, and that was it!

I completed this project in less than 10 minutes, and my boys LOVED the vampire pumpkin. It is a cute decoration for Halloween.
