Dried Pumpkin Seed Flower
With Halloween fast approaching it will be time to carve those pumpkins with the kids. Many of you may save the pumpkin seeds to roast and eat but why not save some to make this Dried Pumpkin Seed Flower. It only requires a few ingredients which you probably already have at home.
To roast the seeds remove them from the pumpkin, rinse the seeds clean in a colander and dry well with a paper towel.
Toss the dry seeds in a little oil then place them on a baking sheet in a single layer. Roast them in a preheated 300º oven until they are dry and start to brown, about 45 minutes, tossing frequently. Time may vary due to the different sizes of pumpkin seeds so watch them carefully.
Cut a round circle from a thin piece of cardboard, I used a cereal box. Then use craft glue to attach the seeds and twine. Note the direction of the seeds in my picture and have fun!
