pumpkin seed art


I usually save seeds from my squash and pumpkins for next-season planting, but one pumpkin has enough seeds to spare some for roasting and some for fun! We hadn't ever dyed pumpkin seeds before this but they came out really pretty; some of them dyed dark, some light, some speckled.

What you need:
  • pumpkin (or other squash) seeds
  • food coloring
  • white vinegar
  • paper and glue
Just add some white vinegar and a few drops of food coloring to a bowl, mix, and add pumpkin seeds. Leave them in until you are happy with the color, then drain and let them dry on towels at room temperature or a cookie sheet in the oven at a low temperature. Glue them on however you'd like. Love this tree idea!

H&F both wanted to make shapes - they each made a circle and rectangle.
