You will need:
- a large pumpkin cut out
- black felt
- needle and thread or strong fabric glue
Cut your felt to be generally the same shape as your pumpkin. You can cut your pumpkin to be slightly smaller than the edge of your pumpkin and just glue or sew the felt to the back of your pumpkin. This gives you some room for candy, but not a ton. I like to cut it a little bigger and then glue the edges to the back of the pumpkin, allowing the black felt to be a little baggy in the middle of the back. This gives you just a little more room for delicious candy.
Cut a long length or ribbon, bring the ends together so it makes a large loop and secure to the back of the pumpkin stem with either glue or needle and thread. This will give you something to hang the pumpkin with.
My daughter already loves The Good Candy Pumpkin and I love how easy it was to pull together? What Halloween traditions do you have in your house?

Oh that's cute! Looks easy to make too and very festive.
That is so cute. We have very few trick or treaters but I always leave a bowl for them. This is the perfect size for it and so much cuter.

What a cute idea! We're going Trick or treating with my 1 yr old niece this year. Should be fun!
That is such a great idea. Would be great in a classroom.
