Halloween Silverware Holders
A family friendly project even young kids can help with!
(or you can use stick pins)
Collect all your supplies and set up your work station.
Print your pumpkin pattern at the link above.
Cut out your pumpkin pattern.
Secure the pumpkin to one piece of the orange felt. (You can do this with tape or pins.)
Cut out your first pumpkin and set aside. (If you are making multiple silverware holders, cut out as many as you need making sure you have 2 pieces of felt for each pumpkin.)
Cut the stem off your pattern.
Secure the pattern to the second piece of orange felt and cut it out. (repeat if making more than one, with the remaining felt pieces)
Place the stem pattern on the green piece of felt. (you can get multiple stems from one piece of felt)
You now have your pieces ready.
Place the pumpkin that has the stem attached on your work surface.
Line the edge of the entire thing with glue EXCEPT for the stem area. Leave the top part of the pumpkin open. (this is where your silverware pocket opening will be).
Place the second piece of orange felt (with no stem) on top of that and press down to glue.
Glue down the green felt stem as well.
Trim any areas that are uneven.
Allow at least 1 hour (if not more) for the glue to dry.
To use, simply set the pumpkin on your table and slip the silverware into the pocket of the holder.
MAKES: 1 pumpkin silverware holder.
