Stone-faced Pumpkins

Total Time Needed: 2-3 Hours

Looking for a rock-solid decorating idea to charm your visitors this year? Try lining up a windowsill collection of these mini stone jack-o'-lanterns.


  • Assorted stones (just about any shape will do)
  • Orange acrylic paint and paintbrush
  • Black permanent marker
  • Twigs (1 for each stone)
  • Tacky glue


  1. Wash any dirt from the stones and let them dry completely. Then paint them orange, using 2 coats if necessary.
  2. Once the paint is dry, draw on faces with a black marker. Finally, glue a twig pumpkin stem atop each stone.
