Tuesday Toppers: Pumpkin /Jack 'o Lantern

Tuesday Toppers: Pumpkin /Jack 'o lantern

This week I'm going to show you how to make the second topper in my halloween set, this super simple pumpkin topper. Its so easy that it would be a great project to do with the kiddies in you life (just use the straight side of a butter knife). It would also make a great fall or Thanksgiving topper too! At the end I show you how to quickly turn it into a jack o' lantern . Here's what you will need to make one:


-Black edible marker (optional)
-Orange fondant
-Whole clove (available in spice section of grocery stores)


-Roll out a 1" ball of orange fondant. Take the knife and starting at the bottom, rock the knife upwards to make vertical indentations all the way around.



-Take the whole clove and gently press it into the top of the ball.


-Couldn't be any simpler!


-If you want to make it a jack o' lantern, take the black edible marker and simply draw a spooky face on it!( One helpful tip is to let them sit over night to dry before drawing)

Happy Tuesday!
