A mold of sorts ( cauldron, pumpkin )
Wood glue ( gorilla glue)
Newspaper or magazines( you can also use tissue paper it gives it wicked texture)
Acrylic paint ( green) for stem
Hot glue/ glue sticks
NOTE: this project cost me a total of $0 , I had everything I needed in my Halloween stash, lying around in my junk drawer or in my garage!
Step 1: Covering Your Mold
Step 2: Separate and Conquer
Step 3: Make Up That Face ;)
This part sounds a little tricky but reach in the mouth and take the Saran paper out, it should just come right out , u can make an opening on the back to put your light in , or like me just leave it all closed and throw a light in through eyes , nose or mouth :)
Now take yourself and your pumpkin outside and spray paint the outside , any color of your choosing.
NOTE: the inside of your pumpkin a light color, it shows off the color so much better!!
Step 4: Make a Stem and Finishing Touches
now roll some newspaper together and tape it, be creative , the best pumpkins have the gnarliest stems!!! Now slide it on to the wire and hot glue the base of the stem to the pumpkin. It should be ready to paint now , I chose a bright green and a little brown to give it some age.
I went ahead and used pumpkin orange ( literally ) to give it a little edge , outline the eyes and mouth in black ( the messier the better!!)
Step 5: Light It Up!!!!!!! or Don't !
Now plug it in and ENJOY!!!!!
Also remember you can always wear this baby that's right this project doubles and you can wear it out as part of you Halloween costume just put it on and don't worry about the light!
