  2. Crumble the vanilla wafers by lightly pounding on the bag, or by gently using a rolling pen back and forth over the bag.
  3. Mix the vanilla wafer crumbs, coconut and powdered sugar in large bowl.
  4. Add the undiluted frozen orange juice and mix well. Use your hands as needed.
  5. Make different size pumpkins heads, from all to extra large, by rolling the mixture into your hands (similar to making different size cookies).
  6. Add a drop or two of food coloring to individual bowls of coconut. This is optional, but is a great way to add some color to the pumpkin heads.
  7. Roll the orange balls in powdered sugar or into the bowls of colored coconut flakes.
