@K8sMom2002 I got the pumpkin from Michaels, then I bought decorative, ornate bats to place on it and ordered 1" vinyl mailbox letters off Amazon to use! I tried several other letters/stickers but they wouldn't stay. I almost did stencil & paint but this worked well and is reusable every year

Keep it simple with just the color image . Use the stencil printout and let the kids color their own creation with fabric paints or pens to make it special. Grab your glue gun to add ribbons or other fun details.
