A Halloween Froggy Witch Pumpkin

Okay, so Froggy isn't real scary as a witch, but he's easy to make and would look great used for a Halloween party decoration.

You'll enjoy making this Froggy Witch Pumpkin Craft, and once you see how easy it is to do, you'll want to make a bunch of them, especially if you need Halloween table decorations for a party. Get a few friends together, be sure you have all the supplies you need and have a fun filled evening of crafting.

In this articles I've included patterns for Froggy's face, legs and witch's hat. I also explain the steps, with pictures, on how to make a Halloween Froggy Pumpkin Witch.I used a 5" Styrofoam ball for Froggy and the patterns are for that sized ball, but if you want to make a smaller, or larger Froggy Witch Pumpkin, just resize the pattern pieces.It isn't too early to start making Halloween decorations, you'll want plenty of time to just enjoy them.

Witch's Hat Assembly

Apply a small amount of glue to one side of the tip of the witch’s hat, hold with a straight pin and overlap the other side to form the hat tip. Then run a line of glue down the rest of the side length, overlap to form a cone.

Around the bottom of the cone, cut ” slits about an inch apart to form tabs. Fit the cone inside the hat brim and apply glue to one tab and attach it to the underside of the brim. Glue the tab opposite the first glued tab and attach. Continue gluing all the tabs to the underside of the brim.

Starting at the front of the hat, wrap the burlap strip around the crown of the hat and glue in place. Glue the buckle over the band.

Craft the Froggie Face

Glue the white part of the eyes to the frog head, notice the placement. Glue the black eye pupils inside the white, having them touch in the center. Draw a mouth with a black Sharpie and cut a small slit in the center of the mouth. Fit the straight end of the tongue into the slit and glue it to the backside of the frog head.
