The skull is one of the most popular characters in the Lockwood series. Sarcastic, evil and a tad helpful, he can only communicate with gifted agent Lucy Carlyle. Like Lucy, you can have your very own skull as a (sometimes) helpful sidekick with this handy template!

You will need:

 An orange pumpkin

 White paint

•  Black marker


How to make it:

 Paint the pumpkin white and leave to dry 

•  Print the template and place over the pumpkin and secure in place with tape

•  Use a black marker, or black paint to draw the skull detail

 Leave to dry

Now you can use your terrifying Halloween pumpkin to decorate your home for the spookiest night of the year. Find a spot to display and watch the scares unfold!
