Green plastic pumpkin candy bucket
Colored felt–Pick the color that represents the character you want to represent.
Leonardo who is the leader of the group wears a blue mask and of course carries two long swords to help protect himself.
Red stands for Raphael and the bad boy attitude that goes with it. His weapon of choice is two sai which are pointed metal batons.
Orange is Michelangelo’s color and he is the youngest of the four turtles who loves pizza and of course nunchakus!
Purple masked Donatello prefers to use his mind to come up with unique ways to come out of a sticky situation. But he does carry a long bo for when he gets caught in a situation he can’t think his way out of.
Craft or hot glue, glue gun
We found the green plastic pumpkin bucket you see here at Walmart for just $1. Felt can also be found at Walmart or your local craft store for around .50 cents per sheet.
1. Use your scissors to cut a thick strip of felt. You want it to be about 3 inches wide.
2. Now, create a bandana shape with the felt. Create a slight dip near the center of the eyes to shape it to the face.
3. Cut the eye holes into the felt. These can be as little or as big as you wish. To make sure they line up with your pumpkin eyes, set the felt over the face and make pen marks so you know where to cut.
4. Attach the mask to the face with glue. Just add some to each side of the mask and press it to the face of the pumpkin.
Your Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle treat bucket is now ready to be used. See how easy and inexpensive that was? It makes the perfect Halloween craft, so give it a try!
