Pumpkin and Gourd Bowling Set
Create a fun Halloween-style bowling set out of a pumpkin bowling ball and gourd pins. Great as both a yard decoration and party game.
Materials and Tools:
1 small pumpkin
black craft paint
white spray paint
orange craft paint
1. To turn the gourds into bowling pins, spray them with white spray paint. Allow to dry, and then paint an orange stripe around the necks.
2. Add a marbleized, bowling-ball effect to the pumpkin by sponging on black craft paint. Then, add three dots to replicate a bowling ball's finger holes.
3. Set them up in the yard just like at a bowling alley. Tip: This is a great project to complete with kids. They can help paint the gourds and ball, and then have fun bowling.
