Place a piece of cardboard or newspaper between the layers of the garment so they do not stick together.
Cut out the shapes of a jack-o-lantern face from your black felt: 2 eyes, a nose, and a mouth.
It often helps to lay out all your cut-out pieces before starting to glue.
Glue all of the pieces on the front of the garment. Make sure you allow some time for the glue to dry.
Make sure your shirt dries completely before removing it from the cardboard and wearing it.
Cut out a piece of brown felt that will cover your toilet paper tube, leaving about two inches extra on one end.
Glue brown felt around your toilet paper tube, once again leaving those extra two inches on the end.
Dab some glue on the inside of the overhanging felt.
Scrunch the extra fabric closed, in a twisted "stem" fashion. Be careful if you're using hot glue -- the glue might seep out of the felt!
Cut four slits in the opposite "bottom" end of the T.P. tube to create tabs.
Another angle on our tabs.
Glue two of the tabs onto the top of your headband.
Secure the T.P. tube by gluing the other two tabs on the underside of the headband.
Cut some green leaf shapes from felt, and glue to your "stem!"
Add some green curling ribbon for an added "vine" effect. Allow everything to dry, then wear with pride!
