Welcome trick-or-treaters and Halloween guests with a litter of black cat pumpkins. These carve-free kitties are easy to craft, making them a fun project for older children or small kids with a little help from a crafty adult.
Deep pumpkin-hued walls invoke creativity in this project room with plenty of counter space, plus cubbies for sewing or scrapbooking. Two nooks (with built-in desks) and a large project table provide room for everyone in the family to have their own personal workspace. An enormous corkboard over one of the desks offers a place to pin up ideas, works in progress, or favorite family photos.
A spooky entryway is created with simple DIY crafts, including bats cut from black card stock, branches from the yard and raven figurines. A variety of pumpkins and gourds add color and seasonal flare.
Russian artist Salavat Fidai uses a craft knife and 4x magnifying glass to create his sculptures atop pencils. The works take anywhere from six to 12 hours to make. Fidai also paints artworks on seeds and his favorite canvas is the pumpkin seed.
