Great Cover-Up--you absolutely can do this! Even with super-uglies left over from the '70s.

Cinnamon Dough Pumpkins (DO NOT EAT)---- 1 1/2 cups ground cinnamon- 1 cup unsweetened applesauce- 1/3 cup white glue, such as Elmers- --Combine all ingredients in a bowl and knead until the dough is smooth and pliable. Form into pumpkin shapes and lightly score with a toothpick to form the ridges. While the dough is still moist, place a small twig into the top center for the stem. Dry for a few days or speed up the process by drying in a warm oven (200F).
