Step 1: Fill the Ice Cube Tray or Molds With the Clay
Optionally, you can cut the silicone molds apart so each person has their own mold.
Dust each mold with a tiny bit of baby powder.
Tear off bits of clay and push into the pumpkin mold until just filled
Step 2: Dry and Paint and Add Pin or Magnet
Set near a register to dry overnight and then gently pop the pumpkins out of the mold and let dry another day.
Paint the pumpkins, however you like and let dry. Speed up the dry time with a hair dryer.
Use Mod Podge to attach the eyes. Draw a mouth with a permanent marker.
Glue a magnet or pin back to the back.
TIP: If pumpkins have any rough edges, file the dried clay away with a nail file.
