31 Days of DIY Halloween - Pumpkin Mummy


Isn't this cute Mummy pumpkin by my friend Cheryl Ball to die for (or should we say to DIY for)? Whahaha! If you are wanting to do a scary/spooky pumpkin that is still kid-friendly, then this one is for you! This pumpkin project will definitely be one that you'll get so wrapped up over making!

1. Use pencil to draw two oval eye shapes onto white craft foam then cut out.
