I had shared this post a year ago as a guest post on Bacon Time with the Hungry, Hungry Hypo. Since it has been a year, and most of my readers might not have seen them, I thought I would share them again here. Meet two more members of the Pumpkin Gang, Bat Pumpkin and Spider Pumpkin.

I started both pumpkins by painting dollar store craft pumpkins black.
I chose the largest size google eyes that I had in my stash of eyes. The legs are made from a giant chenille pipe cleaner that I found at Michaels. I cut the pipe cleaner into eight equal parts, and glued them onto the pumpkin with a glue gun.
I continued gluing until all the legs were attached. I also glued on a piece of red pipe cleaner for the smile
I made the face of the bat the same way, but I adding small triangles of craft foam for the fangs. The wings and ears of the bat are also made from craft foam. Once I got a shaped that I liked, I glued them onto the pumpkin.
Pretty easy right?! They are also cute, and not scary like their real life counterparts.
The Bat and Spider Pumpkins will be on display with their Pumpkin Gang friends..
There is even a few more in the works for this month! Stay tuned to see what they are.
