Okay, they’re really more of a gourd.
I decided it was time to break out a few out my pinterest DIY skills with a Halloween craft, because of like, Halloween and stuff. I have always loved carving pumpkins, much to my Mother’s chagrin. I’ve gotten a lot neater about it over the year. Using small gourds also helps limit the mess.
I saw this craft on pinterest a couple of weeks ago and I couldn’t resist. I’m not really into vampires or zombies or anything, but I had to make these! They were too cute!
So I started with a largeish gourd.
I took a pair of teeth and traced them on a piece of paper, and cut that out to use as a stencil for the mouth. I then pinned the stencil to the mouth and made small holes along the edge of the stencil.
Then I cut out the mouth and gutted the gourd.
I tried to stuff the teeth in, but had to cut a little more out to be able to put the teeth in.
Lastly, the details. I drew the eyes on with a permanent marker, and painted on the blood with a little red paint.
There you go! The cutest vampire gourd you ever did see!
