Pumpkin-Face Fun for Halloween

By MissyPenny
October 31, 2015

If you enjoy feeding squirrels, and you would like to have a delightful yard "ornament" for Halloween, then this easy pumpkin face is a perfect fit. Let your little critter-artists design and create a zombie-face jack-o-lantern. Oh, what fun!

@MissyPenny

How do you get the peanut butter in the holes after you use the drill or icepick? What kind of drill and what drill bits did you use?

Do you have to use creamy peanut butter and not crunchy peanut butter?

It is too late this year for me, since Halloween is Saturday, but sounds like fun for next year.

Love your pics. Thumbs up

Yup, could not agree more! This one is getting done tomorrow at my house. My almost 2 year old grandson should get quite a kick out of watching the squirrels go to work on this.

Thanks so much, all y'all....Marilyn, my hubby says any kind of drill (wood or steel does not matter)...and the size is quarter inch.
We use creamy peanut butter, and just put the butter on our finger and smear it in!!! Smiling
Happy Halloween

hey - that IS fun!
I didn't rush to read it because I don't decorate for holidays.
But I may just have to next year just to do this!
