Trick or craft! This Halloween season, we are tricking our pumpkins by making them think they are a round black cat, a chubby horned owl and a sly orange fox. These balls of spooky fun are so simply to craft with just a few basic supplies and easy-to-follow instructions. We started this project by designing cute patterns to be cut from layers of colored felt. You can download our patterns at the end of this post.
Each pattern includes two pages for each animal’s pattern as well as another two prints, giving you a guide to assemble all of the pieces. This is a 12-page PDF. Once you gather all of your materials (see list below), you can reduce or enlarge your pattern to fit your pumpkins. For our set we reduced the size of the fox to fit the smaller pumpkins. You can follow the step-by-step tutorial below to assemble these adorable pumpkin buddies. And if you don’t have as much time or a supply of felt, just use the paper printable for your pumpkin costume instead!
