Angry Birds Pumpkin Carving for Halloween!

Sep29

by

I don’t know about your kids but my kid is CRAZY about Angry Birds these days. If she isn’t borrowing my phone to play the game then she’s begging for an Angry Birds lunch box or a t-shirt or an Angry Birds tattoo on her bicep. Just kidding on that last part but I wouldn’t put it past her.

So it wasn’t too far of a stretch for me to figure out that she’d love some Angry Bird pumpkins for Halloween this year. We here at Alpha Mom figure you’re probably thinking the same thing so we’ve made you some Angry Birds templates to help with the pumpkin carving!

Just print them out:

Yellow Bird
Blue Bird
Red Bird
Chicken
Pig

Tape them to your pumpkin and get to carving! The yellow and red areas are “shaded” areas which means you don’t want to carve this space out but instead just lightly shave your pumpkin with a knife or a potato peeler.

In the daytime they looked better with their beaks in. (You can just wedge the piece you cut out back in there and hold it in place with a toothpick, bringing it slightly forward on one side so it looks beakish.) But at night they looked better without their beaks. It’s funny how negative space plays tricks with your eyes sometimes. If you’d like the pumpkin tops to look like feathers, just cut out some notches from the circle you make to remove the seeds and then round them into feathers like so:

Then sit the lid on top of your pumpkin vertically, like so. (Toothpicks can help here too if the lids wants to fall inside the pumpkin.) Just make sure you’re using battery-operated candles or leave the tops off if you want to burn real candles.

It’s an very Angry Birds Halloween!

If you’d like to play along with some little laughing pumpkin pigs, here’s a pdf you can print out, cut and glue dot onto some mini pumpkins. I can almost hear them grunting!

Update:  We love you Angry Birds. We’ll take this post down if this bothers you. We’ve just made this craft because we wanted to keep the Angry Birds party going.

    Those are fantastic!  But probably not the best idea for someone who has never carved a pumpkin before…

    You are the best. LOVE these. I think I want to do a whole series of punkins this year…. :)

    I bet my brother would love this idea too. 34 years old still counts as being a kid, right?

    Cool idea and looks simple enough to carve for a non carving expert like me!

  6. Oh I’m sending this to all moms I know. SUCH A GOOD IDEA! This is a slap yourself on the head idear.

    Yeah. Um. Sorry about that. It’s completely my fault that she’s addicted to angry birds.

    Did you know that if you use Google Chrome you can download a free Angry Birds app that you can play on your computer?

    I am totally doing this. It’s waaaay better than a princess pumpkin.

    So cute, love the pumpkins! My kids would love this as well. Nice to have something different for the pumpkin!

    I’m the worry wart type – but don’t you have to worry about copyright infringement when you reproduce something like this? Not for us, obviously, but for Alpha Mom, etc. Any lawyers out there? Probably not an issue since it’s a give-away, and not being sold, right?

    I love these and will share them out to our moms!

    Brilliant.  Just brilliant.  I am going to print out the templates and take them with me to my grandchildren.  It will be hard to keep me from launching them, but I’ll try to restrain myself.  Brenda, you’re a superstar!!!

    I did this tonight with my boyfriend and it turned out FANTASTIC!! And my favorite part? It took about ten minutes to carve. So easy! Thank you so much for the great idea!

    Now I want to carve them and play!
    I wonder how it will turn out?
