Step 1: Get yer gourd
Take a look at it from the end. Find one that kind of resembles a face with a down turned nose, and is fairly symetrical. Also make sure that it can balance fairly well on it's side, with the point down.
Step 2: Gather your materials
You will also need:
Some modeling clay (I use light yellow)
2 circles from a paper punch that are colored black. (I just colored a section of paper with a sharpie and used a 3 hole punch)
Step 3: Eyes
On one end stick one of your little black paper circles.
Smoosh (yes, it's a technical term) the eye in between two of the flanges along side of the gourd.
Repeat with the other side. Look at it from the front and decide if the eyes need to be adjusted, made smaller or larger, move the pupils etc.
Step 4: Paws and Claws
Roll out 4 little snakes aproximately all the same size. Set them side by side and stick them together.
Give them a little bend over your finger.
Repeat to make the other hand.
Step 5: Set up your Goblin
Place your claws on either side of the goblin head and adjust them so it looks like he's holding on to the ledge.
Wait for others to spot them!
