Pumpkins and Princesses have a history. Just think about poor
Cinderella who never would have made it to her Happily Ever After
without one. So if your princess has an October birthday, here are some
ideas for her pumpkin'd out party.
Cinderella's Royal Pumpkin Coach - Create 1 large or individual
pumpkin coaches for Cinderella to ride in to the palace. If you don't
want to use real pumpkins use sugar cookies and frosting instead of
pumpkins and other supplies.
Make a Pumpkin Princess -
Jack-o-lanterns don't have to be scary. Dress up and turn your pumpkin
into a beautiful princess.
Cinderella's Royal Pumpkin Coach - For whatever size coach you
decide on choose a larger pumpkin for the carriage, and 4 smaller
pumpkins for the wheels. Place them on a piece of cardboard for
assembly and decoration. You will probably want to use hot glue to
attach the wheels if you are using mini pumpkins, but if you want
something more authentic get some wooden dowels from a craft or home
improvement store. You will want to drill a hole in the large and small
pumpkins, insert the dowel and attach. Next you can use ribbons,
glitter, sequins, gems or anything else that you can think of to make
your coach beautiful.
Princess Pumpkin - You will want a
pumpkin per girl, but they can be smallish. Use corn stocks, yarn, or
twine for the hair, and include some ribbon for bows. Tiaras would be
an extra bonus. If you want to dress them up just pick up some tulle or
other princessy material from a fabric store. If you sew you can
stitch some elastic to the tulle to make fabric skirts for the pumpkins.
If not, get creative with hot glue. You could paint, use colored
markers, glitter, or even a touch of makeup for the faces. Stick on
earrings could be fun or other jewelry.
careful with hot glue and kids. They don't always remember that it's
hot. Make sure you have paper or cardboard underneath the working area
so you don't have a problem cleaning up after.
