Detergent Bottle Pumpkins

Save the bright orange liquid detergent bottles during the year. Remove the label by soaking in hot water.

Decorate the front of the bottle with either black felt, or black fun foam cut into triangle eyes, and nose, and zigzag mouth. Glue these on with a craft glue.


If the lid to your bottle is not green, spray paint it green. Make leaves from green felt or fun foam. Attach leaves to green pipe cleaners. Attach to green lid. Use extra pipe cleaners wind them around a pencil to make them curly like a tendril from the vine.

The Cub Scouts made these to brighten the dining room of a local nursing home. They had as much fun making them as the older folks enjoyed them. Of course, seeing the young boys was a treat too!

To have enough bottles, they asked friends, neighbors to save the bottles for them. Most of the dining rooms have quite a number of tables.
