Its Conker season and so why not turn them into little pumpkins for display this Halloween.

You will need:

  • Conkers - you may need to dry them out first so that the paint sticks
  • Orange paint
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Paintbrush
  • Green or brown pipe cleaner
  • Black pen
  • Googly eyes - optional

Now, if you have everything, let's go.

1. Start by painting your conkers a nice bright orange colour (you could also use glow in the dark paint if you have it). You may need a few layers of paint, but if you are using Acrylic paint you may be able to get away with one coat.

2. Find a pipe cleaner (you could use any colour, but we chose green) and cut it into a smaller piece before bending it into a zig-zag.

3. Glue the pipe cleaner sprigs to the top of your conker so that it creates the tops.

4. Now you have options of how to decorate your conker pumpkin. If you want to make them with just eyes, then either get the sticky back eyes or glue on the eyes to where you want the front of your pumpkin to be.

5. Or you may want to make your Conker Pumpkin a bit more spooky, then you can draw on a pumpkin carved face using a black pen.

Just look how cute they all look together. Show us your makes on our social media channels.
