In case you are looking for a fun and easy painted pumpkin idea for the upcoming Halloween, then you’ve visited the right place. Do your kids love Cookie Monster? If your answer is yes, then, have to give this Cookie Monster pumpkin a try!
This pumpkin is certainly more-cute-than-creepy, which is completely fine for me! Not the whole thing for Halloween has been blood, guts and scary. This pumpkin is an impeccable decoration for your house plus it doubles as a way to serve some cookies, not to mention that your kids will surely love it!
If you're nervous that you have to be super imaginative to pull this off – you don’t have to! Just scoop your pumpkin, cut a mouth, paint the pumpkin blue and add the Styrofoam as the eyes. Each and every pumpkin will appear a little different, and that's perfectly fine.
Here are some photos of pumpkins other people have created to get your artistic juices flowing.
In case carving out teeth is too complicated for you, just a simple smile will do!
