Happy Halloween! This year we chose to do It’s a Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown for our Trunk or Treat theme. It was super easy and cheap! 😁
I was able to get two large pieces of cardboard from a bathroom renovation project at work to spray paint for the sky and grass areas. I hand drew cardboard cutouts made on a large sheet of craft board from the dollar store and painted them with acrylic paint that I had on hand.
The Snoopy pumpkin was made by spray painting a tall skinny pumpkin and a butternut squash white. The scarf was made by cutting up an old red sweatshirt and his nose was fashioned out of black modeling clay. I used real and fake pumpkins purchased at the dollar store.
The trick or treating ghost kids were made from round plastic table cloths purchased at the dollar store with eye holes drawn on with a Sharpie. I made the witch mask from green, white, and black felt. I used cotton batting and rolled the nose, securing it with hot glue. The witch hat was also purchased at the dollar store.
We stood the ghosts up by using 5 gallon water jugs with wooden dowels in the middle with duct tape. For the heads I used some paper mache balloons and a styrofoam craft head I had left over from other projects. I put white modeling clay at the bottom of the table cloths to prevent them from blowing off in the wind.
It was qiuck, easy, and lots of fun to make!
