  1. Cut two eye holes in the paper plate. Make sure you can see through them.
  2. Mix some red and yellow paint and paint the paper plate orange. Leave to dry.
  3. Paint black triangles around the eye holes and as a nose. Also paint a crooked mouth and leave to dry.
  4. Stick a piece of crepe paper to the top of the plate as a stalk.
  5. If you like, use a black pen to draw segments down the plate to make it look more pumpkin like.
  6. Pierce holes either side of the plate using a sharp pencil and plasticine to cushion from the other side.
  7. Thread string through each hole and tie so the mask stays on your face.
