Halloween Crafts: Ballplayer Pumpkin Decoration

Ballplayer Pumpkin

Total Time Needed: 1 Hour

Transform a pumpkin into a bubble-blowing major leaguer.


  • Pumpkin
  • Carving knife
  • White paper
  • Acrylic paint or markers
  • Pink balloon
  • Baseball cap


Cut the pumpkin's top off and hollow out the shell.

For eyes, carve holes in the shell and tack white paper behind them.

Use acrylic paints and colored markers to add hair and eye black below the eyes.

To make the gum bubble, blow up a small pink balloon and pull the knotted end through a small hole in the pumpkin's shell. Then add a baseball cap for the finishing touch.
