We’re a big fan of no carve pumpkins in my house! We’ve made everything from unicorn pumpkins to Frankenstein pumpkins and we’re not slowing down now!

 No Carve Bumblebee Pumpkin

This year we made a cute butterfly pumpkin after I was inspired by butterfly wings that I found at a dollar store. It turned out so cute that when I saw bumblebee wings the next time, I picked up a pair of those too. I thought our butterfly might to have a bumblebee pumpkin to keep her company! I grabbed a few more styrofoam pumpkins while I was there too.

Instructions

  • Paint your pumpkin yellow (it may need two coats)
    Yellow painted pumpkin
  • Starting from the top, paint black stripes around the pumpkin, leaving a space in the front for the face.
  • To make the eyes, I used the paint bottle and a quarter to trace two large white and two medium black circles.
  • Glue them together, then add a tiny white circle to each eye.

  • Hot glue the eyes to the front of the bumblebee, then cut a mouth out of the black foam.
  • Attach bumblebee wings to the back of the pumpkin

  • Cut the stems to shorten the flowers. If the stem has metal inside, bend the stem back and forth until it breaks. Insert flowers into flower foam

  • Take the pointy end of each BBQ skewer and push it all the way into the bumblebee. Put the other end into the flower foam. Now you have a cute flying bumblebee
