Create Your Own Monster Pumpkin!

Make your favorite cookie-loving monster with this pumpkin decorating tutorial from “Hobby Hunting”!

Here’s What You’ll Need:
  • A large or medium-sized pumpkin
  • Blue and Black Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • A knife or pumpkin carving tools
  • Spoon
  • Pencil
  • Two styrofoam balls
  • Hot Glue Gun or Toothpicks
  • Chocolate Chip Cookies


  1. Choose the prettiest pumpkin in the patch! This pumpkin should be large or medium-sized one for the best results.
  2. Paint the pumpkin blue. Be sure to cover the entire pumpkin, and then let it dry.
  3. Cut a hole in the top and clean out the insides of the pumpkin. You can save the seeds to bake in the oven if you like!
  4. Trace a big mouth on the outside of the pumpkin and then cut it out with a knife. Be extra careful!
  5. Paint black dots on the two Styrofoam balls, then use a hot glue gun to glue them to the pumpkin. If you don’t have a hot glue gun, you can use toothpicks. Just stick the toothpicks into the pumpkin where you want the eyeballs to go, leaving a small part sticking out. Then, push the Styrofoam balls into the toothpicks to secure in place.
  6. Add cookies around your pumpkin’s mouth to decorate!
