Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Tools & Colors
You will need:
- Orange Clay
- a small amount of pale green ( I mixed green with a bit of white.)

- Ball stylus
Step 2: Pumpkin
Roll out a ball of clay. Then poke a small hole in the top with the ball tool.
Step 3: The Lines
Take the ball tool and push down along the side of the pumpkin to make the lines.
Step 4: Smoothing the Sides
Now smooth the down the edges of the pumpkin with your fingers and the ball tool to make them more rounded.
Step 5: The Stem
Roll out a small piece of pale green clay into a cone-like shape and place on top of the pumpkin.
Step 6: Finishing Up
Take the ball tool and press the bottom stem into the grooves of the pumpkin. Then twist the stem a tiny bit to give it more realistic look.
Step 7: Baking
Bake in the oven at 275 °F for 15 minutes.
Step 8: Done!
There You have it! A polymer clay pumpkin. Perfect as a fall decoration.
