A playful, under-the-sea pumpkin decorating idea! Materials Pumpkin Acrylic paint Paint brush Felt (you could use fabric or thick paper too) Rocks Glue gun/glue Scissors Pencil/eraser Paper Tape We always find these items helpful too: Smock Craft tray Directions Don your smock. Paint your pumpkin and let it dry. You may require several coats. Sketch your fish and/or other sea creatures onto your paper to make your pattern/ template. Trace your idea onto your felt, cutting out details to add. (We just attached the pattern with a tape donut.) Glue them on and then glue your fish onto your bowl. Be sure to add a few bubbles and some scenery for your fish! If you like, cut off the top and pop in an LED light. You could even get an adult to drill some holes in the pumpkin for bubbles that the light shines through! You could trim the top with a bit of rope to finish off the top edge, creating that lip that you see on a real fish bowl! Do you follow us on Instagram?

Safety Notes We suggest that you wear a smock and use a craft tray to protect your clothing and surfaces. Use scissors and a glue gun with care and adult supervision. Small items such as rocks can be a choking hazard, therefore be sure to keep them out of the reach of children ages 0-3 years of age or those that tend to put things into their mouths.
