It’s that time of year again… we picked out our pumpkins and we brought them home (of course we had to stop & look at these GIANT pumpkins, too!)
Today, I’m partnering with Bounty to bring you a Star Wars Pumpkin idea that I hope you love!
Once we got home (with our normal sized pumpkins… plus two of those tiny ones in the pictures above), we got busy thinking of ideas. Luckily, just in time for Halloween, we picked up some of the new Bounty with Star Wars prints.
Since the kids wanted to do Star Wars pumpkins this year, it worked out that Bounty has the prints to make messy Halloween activities even more fun! Star Wars: The Last Jedi, set to hit theaters on December 15, so the kids were preparing themselves (& their pumpkins) for the show. 🙂 LOL! Thanks to Bounty’s new Star Wars Prints for making it a little more fun for the kids to clean up (and a little easier for me to help with the cleanup!)
Each of the kids picked what they wanted to do… of course, Ethan called me over to take a picture & I found this: (That’s one way to decorate your pumpkin! Throw a mask on it! hahaha!)
Once they got serious… they REALLY got serious. They each start carving their pumpkins:
Allie, on the other hand, wanted a “Girl Pumpkin” … if pumpkins grew in pink, we’d have one, I’m sure of it. Anyway, once I showed her a picture of Princess Leia, I knew she’d love the idea! I gave the idea to Mickey (he’s the creative one, for sure) and he knew just what he needed:
What you need:
– 2 Small Pumpkins
– One Big Pumpkin
– Black Paint
– Purple or pink paint
– Brown paint
– Paint Brush
– Bounty Paper Towels I grabbed the new Bounty with Star Wars prints Paper Towels to make clean-up a little more exciting. They have Quilted Napkins, too. We keep packs of Bounty Paper Towels on a shelf in the garage because, with four kids, we need a #quickerpickerupper – that’s for sure! I love when Bounty comes out with fun prints like these ones!
1- Paint the eyes, lips, nose & hair with black paint.
2- Paint the mini pumpkins black.
3- Add details (brown streaks to hair, color to eyes & lips)
4- Cut off the top of the mini pumpkins and add skewers to the pumpkin. Stick the mini pumpkin onto the big pumpkin to make Princess Leia’s hair buns.
5- Repeat on the other side.
That’s it! It turns out so cute!
What kind of messy and FUN Halloween crafts do you like to make?!
