Mr. Hoot-Hoot Pumpkin Seed



Last year E and I dyed pumpkin seeds and made them into a jack o'lantern.  
I saw it in our Family Fun magazine and we just had to do it! 
We wanted to try again this year, and came up this little guy...

{Mr. Hoot-Hoot Pumpkin Seed}


Isn't he cute?!
Pin It

When I dyed the seeds I wasn't sure what we were going to make this year, but I found this cute owl printable and the seeds looked so much like feathers!!

As for the recipe,I winged it this year...a spoonful of vinegar, some warm water, drops of food coloring and then I did bake them at 200 degrees for about 20 min. just to speed up the drying.  The waiting to dye and waiting to dry are the two most time consuming pieces.  Here is an actual recipe...




I have yet to have them turn out more uniform in color, but it actually looked better with the variation for this project.  

Here's the cute little guy we started with...

added some glue and worked on a good design with E...



Enjoy!!
