      Patterson Pup-Kins

      Just in time for Halloween, we have put together a simple do-it-yourself pumpkin project that's so fur-reakin' cute, it will have your friends, family, clients, and coworkers barking for more. All it takes to create these crafty puppy pumpkins (AKA pup-kins) is craft foam, paint, and our free downloadable stencils. Combine those elements, and you'll end up with a pawsitively precious end these!



      When we say this is simple, we mean it! After painting a real or craft pumpkin with acrylic paint and letting it dry, print your favorite free template and use it a stencil for cutting out the required craft foam pieces. Attach the foam pieces to your pumpkin with hot glue, add desired details with a Sharpie marker, and display your pup-kin for all to see. Below are some additional images of what your finish craft will look like if you follow these easy steps.
