Despicable Me Mini Minion Pumpkins!

I am not crafty but I decided to get crafty for Halloween. I saw a friend of mine post a huge minion pumpkin on her Facebook. I loved it. Because if you know me, you know I LOVE minions. Love, love, love minions!!

So I decided I wanted a minion pumpkin but I am too lazy to actually paint a huge minion pumpkin, so I decided to do mini pumpkins because they were easier to make and cuter. It was actually easy. All you need is paint and brushes. It's a great craft for Halloween or Thanksgiving. If I could do it, trust me, a 3 year old could do it!

I bought some cheapo acrylic paint at the store and foam brushes. I only used yellow, white and black paint.  I bought the mini pumpkins at the grocery store.

I started out with painting the pumpkins.

I only made 2 minion pumpkins: Dave and Stuart. I was going to make
Tim but he would have come out like Dave so I decided not too.
I decided to make black and white skull mini pumpkins but in the end they came
out just like regular pumpkins and not like skulls. 

I painted white circles and then outlines the white circles with the
 black glasses and then added the eyeball.

So damn cute! 

Look at them, they are adorbs!

The rest of my pumpkins! 

Just so cute!
