This Butternut Pluto is sure to add cheer and joy to your Thanksgiving table.

Time: 25 Minutes

What You’ll Need

  • Butternut squash (approximately 9 to 10 inches tall and 15 or 16 inches around at the bottom)*
  • Scissors
  • Black and white sticky-back felt
  • Felt scraps (black and yellow)
  • Paper towel or toilet tissue tube
  • Ruler
  • Glue dots

How To Make It

  1. Print the template and use it as a pattern for cutting out the pieces from the specified types and colors of felt.
  2. Stick the white felt eye panel to the front of the butternut squash, ideally positioning the lower edge just above the rounded bottom portion of the squash. Press the nose in place so that it just slightly overlaps the eye panel. Then press on the eyes (just above the nose) and the mouth (an inch or so from the nose).
  3. To assemble the ears, pair each ear A with an ear B so that the sticky sides are together and the felt sides face out. Press the pieces together, except leave the tabs at the tops of the ears unstuck. Spread the tabs apart and stick them to the sides of the squash near the upper edge of the eye panel.
  4. For Pluto’s pilgrim hat, cut a 2.5-inch section from a paper towel tube. Cut slits in the top of the tube (three-quarters of an inch deep and a half-inch apart), as shown.
  5. Cut wedge-shaped slits in the black felt hat brim (as marked on the template).
  6. Pull the brim down over the cardboard tube, as shown.
  7. Stick the felt hat top to the tube top, using glue dots to help keep it firmly in place.
  8. Next, wrap the felt side strip around the tube, again using glue dots to firmly stick down the overlapped edges.
  9. Cut a pair of parallel ½-inch slits in the yellow felt buckle piece, as shown.
  10. Thread the hatband through the buckle slits and then remove the paper backing from the hatband. Wrap the hatband around the hat and use a glue dot to secure the overlapped ends. Set the hat atop the squash, and your Butternut Pluto is ready to greet holiday guests.
