Draw on the faces

Use a permanent marker, such as a black Sharpie, to draw the faces.

Satsumas have waxy skins you may need to draw on your faces, let the ink dry and then go over them again to make them look really bold.

It’s that easy. Have lots of fun making a whole family of pumpkins, each with different expressions.
