Supplies that you will need:

clay vegetables process


  1. 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.
  2. 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.
