Edible Pumpkin Patch

My favorite part of Fall is to take the children to  Schnepf Farms! It is a whole day event that includes pumpkin patch, hay rides, pig races, petting Zoo, corn maze, yummy food, bon fire & marshmallows roasting and fireworks! So fun!!
Since we love pumpkin patch so much, I created our own Edible Pumpkin Patch! Super easy and fun to make! Enjoy!

Pumpkin Peeps and green licorice
round styrofoam 
tags from Bird's Halloween Cupcake Shop printable set
straws or sticks
twine or ribbons
toothpick and glue gun
picked fence(I bough mine at Hobby Lobby)
paper(to cover the styrofoam) 
extra orange sprinkles(optional)

To assemble the pumpkins:
I used extra orange sprinkles to cover the sides and bottom of the pumpkins. Cut a small piece of green licorice, add to the top of your pumpkin(for the stem) and insert a toothpick to the bottom of the pumpkin

Cover the styrofoam with crepe paper, add your bunting, pumpkins and fence. If you don't have a fence, you can easily make one using white card stock. Complete the look by adding some cute ribbon around the styrofoam. 
There! Your own Pumpkin Patch! 

Happy Halloween!
