After printing out the template, cut out the Halloween shape(s) you plan to use as your pattern.
Using a gel pen or marker (a regular pen or pencil won't show up on the felt), carefully trace the paper pattern shape two times on the felt.
Cut out the felt pumpkin shapes. When making the pumpkin, also cut out a small brown stem and a green leaf.
Step 2: Glue it together
Using a glue gun, add a small line of glue, about 1/2 inch long at the top of the pumpkin shape where the stem will go.
Carefully press the stem onto the glue.
Squeeze about a 2 inch long line of glue from the glue gun around the edge of the pumpkin shape, keeping the glue about 1/4 inch from the edge.
Carefully line up the pumpkin shape and press it onto the line of glue.
Pull back the top layer of felt. Starting as close as possible to where you left off, squeeze another 2 inch long line of glue from the glue gun around the edge of the pumpkin shape, again keeping the glue about 1/4 inch from the edge. Make sure the 2 pumpkin shapes are lined up, then press the top layer of felt onto the glue.
Continue adding 2 inch lines of glue from the glue gun, working your way around the edge of the shape. Leave yourself an opening that's about 1.5 inches so you can fill it with stuffing.
Step 3: Stuff the plushie
Pull apart a cotton ball to fluff it up.
Then push the cotton ball into the unglued opening in the plushie. Continue pulling apart cotton balls and stuffing them into the plushie.
Use the eraser of a pencil to push the cotton balls inside the plushie, if needed. Make sure all the corners of the plushie are filled with the cotton ball stuffing.
Step 4: Glue it closed
If the cotton balls left lots of fluff on the felt around the opening, use painters tape or masking tape to pull it off before you glue it closed.
Squeeze a line of glue from the glue gun along the edge of the opening in the plushie.
Line up the 2 sides of the felt, then carefully press the 2 edges of the opening closed. Keep pinching it until the glue has dried (about 20 seconds).
Step 5: Make the face
Cut out a jack-o-lantern face from the black felt. For the ghost, cut out black eyes and a black mouth. For the bat, cut out red eyes.
Carefully pinch the pieces of the face and squeeze a small amount of glue from the glue gun onto them. Then press them in place onto the shape.
