When planting seeds in the spring it’s super easy to forget what you’ve planted once the seeds are under the soil. So I created this adorable pumpkin to mark our pumpkin seeds this year.

My essentials for clay crafts:
- We love using this Sculpey Polymer Oven Bake Clay for all of our projects.
- This clay shaping tool kit is a must have for clay crafting!
- These paint brushes are ideal for most craft surfaces and a great price!
- This rolling storage cart helps to keep our craft supplies organized.
Supplies that you will need:
- parchment paper
- baking sheet
- polymer clay in light green, orange and black
- clay cutting and shaping tools
- black sharpie fine tip marker
- white glue
- white paint
- mod podge
- paint brush
- Form a 2 cm orange ball into a circle shape and press it slightly to squash the shape to look like a pumpkin. Score lines with a clay tool.
- Form two ¼ cm green balls. Roll one into a green rope. Roll two tiny black balls.
3. Loop the rope into a gentle coil and attach it to the top of the orange pumpkin. Place second green ball on top for a stem.
4. Form two indents for eyes with the stylus. Pierce a hole in the bottom with a toothpick.
5. Bake as directed on the package. For me that’s 20 minutes at 220 degrees.
6. Glue the black balls on for eyes, add a white dot with the paint, a smile with the marker and seal with mod podge.
7. Add a toothpick to create a little stake to press into the soil. Voila! Cute pumpkin marker.
