Create the Face
Go to Google and type into the image search “pumpkin face template.” Once you’ve picked your favorite face template you can print the template directly onto the black linen paper. (If you’re feeling creative, any colored paper will work as well). Make sure you do a couple of test prints on plain white computer paper so you can adjust the size of the face to fit the surface of the pail without wasting your linen paper. Once you’ve got the correct size and print, use scissors to cut out the template. We used our RibbonPro Scissors ribbon scissors because they are small enough to get into the creases of the pumpkins mouth.
Once you’ve got the pumpkin’s face cut out, attach to the pail with tape. You can use glue or a hot glue gun for lasting hold if necessary.
Lastly, fill the pail with your favorite snacks and place on your desk. Your coworkers will be happy when they have a sweet tooth craving, and your boss will be happy you didn’t turn your cubicle into a haunted cemetery scene.
