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:

10 gourds
1 small pumpkin
sponge
black craft paint
white spray paint
orange craft paint
paintbrush

Steps:

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.
