Halloween is such a creative holiday.  With the changing of the seasons and the excitement of dressing up and treats, many people throw parties to celebrate.  These Halloween party pumpkin decorations are great to do before a party as decor or at a party as a craft activity.  I used Sculpey Bake Shop for these and it worked perfectly.
