Junk Drawer Pumpkins

This project is great for little ones - there's no carving involved. A small pumpkin is given a face with the addition of a few screws, a button, slices of cork, rubber bands and plastic bread bag clips.

Search the back of your kitchen drawer and dig through your toolbox to find little odds and ends for this project.

Screws and pins hold things in place.

Bottle caps are held in place with nails (and help from an adult) for eye-popping fun.

To make this mouth, we stuck pins in place to create the shape we wanted, then wrapped the outline with black yarn.

    Thanks for this amazing, thrifty idea. I had so much fun doing this project with my son and I cleaned out our junk drawer in the process 🙂
