The idea to create this crochet Halloween Tooth Pumpkin was born after my son’s dentist visit earlier in October. As I already designed a Tooth applique, it was easy to modify it into a Tooth Pumpkin.

This crochet Tooth Pumpkin will make a cute handmade gift for your favorite dentist! You can also use it for embellishment or just make it as an ornament to hang somewhere in the dental office.
This Crochet Tooth Pumpkin can be used for more than just dentists. If your child is expecting a visit from the Tooth Fairy during Halloween, you can use this applique to embellish a Tooth Fairy Pillow, Tooth Fairy Pouch or Bag.
Using the same method as I did to make this crochet Tooth Fairy Pouch, you can make a Halloween Tooth Pumpkin fairy pouch as well!
You can also sew this Tooth Pumpkin Applique onto your child’s clothes or on whatever you would like!
To make this Halloween Tooth Pumpkin, I used my previously designed crochet Tooth applique pattern. For your convenience, I will publish this pattern below as well.
