A nice design that you can do at home with the kids. We tell you what you need: the pumpkin, of course, also eva rubber and cardboard for the hat (take advantage of what you have at home, it isn’t necessary to go shopping), a black marker to imitate the features, plastic spiders for the decoration, a cobweb for the witch’s hair (if you don’t have a cobweb on hand we suggest you use cotton, wool or paper of silk)
