It’s that time of year again… time to go pumpkin picking and design our pumpkins! The kids look forward to this ALL season!
Last year, we made a No-Carve Star Wars Pumpkin of Princess Leia and I had to share it today because it’s still one of my favorite no-carve pumpkin ideas! 🙂
We always start by letting the kids pick out what kind of “design” they want for their pumpkin and then going to a local farm to pick out the pumpkins that they need.
Once we got home (with our normal-sized pumpkins… plus two of those tiny ones in the pictures above), we got started on our pumpkins. Some of the kids still carved their pumpkins…
But Allie & I wanted to make our Princess Leia Star Wars Pumpkin.
What you need for a Princess Leia Pumpkin:
– 2 Small Pumpkins for the buns
– One Big Pumpkin
– Black Paint
– Purple or pink paint
– Brown paint
– Paint Brush
Directions to make a Princess Leia Pumpkin:
1- Paint the eyes, lips, nose & hair with black paint.
2- Paint the mini pumpkins black (this is the perfect step for a child to take over)
3- Add details to Princess Leia’s hair and face (brown streaks to hair, color to eyes & lips)
4- Cut off the top of the mini pumpkins
5- Add skewers to the pumpkin and allow them to stick out, as they will be used to hold the small pumpkins (buns) to the big pumpkin (head).
6- Stick the mini pumpkin onto the big pumpkin to make Princess Leia’s hair buns.
7- Repeat on the other side.
It turns out so cute!
What kind of messy and FUN Halloween crafts do you like to make?!
