How To Create A Thanksgiving Tots Table!

  • Wash and dry pumpkin, set aside. Make googly eyes (use cake push up pop cylinder to trace circles on white cardstock, we pasted it on corrugated cardboard rounds to give it some standing power, you can use bottom of push up pop stick to trace pupils, make sure to leave a white circle in the middle of each pupil as pictures). The waddle you can free-form cut from red card stock. Tape eyes and waddle on pumpkin as shown in picture. On the upper “rear end” of the pumpkin, start inserting tail feather cake push up pops. Find the center on the upper rear end and mark it with a pen. Using a screwdriver whose width of its tips is equal to the diameter of the cake push up pop stick, gently poke a hole through wall of pumpkin and then twist the screwdriver as you pull it out to make sure hole is big enough to easily insert cake push up pop stick. Insert cake push up pop and then mark spot for next feather (remember to account for width of cake push up pop cylinder when marking spots for feathers). Repeat process until all feathers are inserting (note: when inserting tail feathers don’t push down on the push up pops, gently insert the stick into the hole).
