A Plastic Bottle Pumpkin combines the best parts of simplicity and cuteness, making it the perfect fall craft. This darling decoration doubles as a candy container, which means that this is also the perfect homemade gift. Halloween crafts for kids that can be used all autumn are extra special. The best part of recycled crafts for kids like this one is that they're extremely inexpensive. You can make this fun craft for less than a dollar thanks to reducing, reusing, and recycling.

what are the instructions for making this?

Hi, there! If you follow look at the instructions for the owl, you'll see how to cut the bottle. Use two bottoms to make a pumpkin, fill it with orange tissue paper, and then hot glue a stick and leaf on top! I hope that helps!

What exactly is the brown thing sticking out of the plastic?

It's just a regular stick. Any branch you find outside would do perfectly.
