Instructions

  • Choose your Halloween picture. Will you create a jack-o-lantern, a ghost, a skeleton?
  • Place the roasted pumpkin seeds on the foil and paint enough seeds in the correct colors. For example, if you choose to create a jack-o-lantern pumpkin you will need a lot of orange seeds, and a few black and green.
  • Allow the paint to dry for about 30 minutes. While the seeds dry you can sketch out your art on the paper with a pencil.
  • Paint over the design lightly with glue and begin placing the painted seeds to fill it in.
