A pumpkin wearing a mask with a jack-'o'-lantern face.

Having a Socially Distant HalloweenHalloween is usually a festive time, filled with parties and hordes of costumed children going door to door. This year is a little different with many kids in online schooling and avoiding visiting friends and relatives due to COVID-19. The CDC is recommending extra caution and many states and counties are discouraging trick-or-treating altogether.

Medusa Silhouette Halloween Window DecorationThis Halloween window decoration is sure to give anyone the heebie jeebies. In Greek mythology, Medusa was a winged female with live venomous snakes instead of hair. Anyone who looked into her eyes would turn to stone. This year I wanted to have something slightly creepy in the window and this is what I came up with.

 

The finished pumpkin.

Yarn Pumpkin-Shaped DecorationMany people know how to make mache pumpkins out of paper, glue and balloon. Also, some people use thread, glue and a balloon to make pumpkins, but which result in a spherical shape, and, accordingly, very vaguely resemble pumpkins. I got the idea to combine these two methods and make a pumpkin out of yarn and glue with a real pumpkin shape. It's strange that no one has come up with this idea yet. I also want to share with you an idea of how to make such a pumpkin as quickly as possible.
