Of all the pumpkin decoration ideas this one is the best. By far. Like WAY far. Landon had so much fun with this (and so did I)!

Mr. Pumpkin Head

Small Pumpkin
Mr. Potato Head parts
Ice Pick, Nail or other sharp cylindrical object

Take your small pumpkin (about the size of the potato for Mr. Potato Head) and cut the top off. Take out all the seeds and clean out the pulp well. Wash the inside (and out) daily to help keep mold and ickyness away. Using an ice pick or a nail pierce holes in the pumpkin to match the location of Mr. Potato Head.

Mr. Pumpkin Head

When you pierce the bottom, do it either to the front or the back of the little bottom part (you know the stem like texture circle at the bottom… what is that called anyway???). If you try to go through that circle thing it will crack your pumpkin.

Take one of the Mr. Potato Head pieces and make sure they fit in the holes well. You might need to “wallow” out the holes a little with your ice pick to get them to fit. Once it’s all punched, give to your child with the Mr. Potato parts and have fun!

    LOVE this! That is too cute. A couple of years ago we bought a pack of eyes, ears, and mouths for pumpkins (they were spooky) but how brilliant to just use the Mr. Potato Head pieces. We’ve got lots of those! lol
    I’m visiting through the Pinterest Scavenger Hunt and I just love you site. I’m following through email and other ways too now. Have a wonderful day! 🙂

      Thanks for stopping by! I was in the dollar store just yesterday and saw a pack of those pumpkin decorating kits – I had no clue they made them. Makes me wonder now if they would fit the Mr. Potato head and we could add a few eyes and mouths to our collection. Hmm… another trip to the dollar store is in my future!
