You will need

Step 2: Modify the LED tea light

I pulled off the plastic flame to make the tea light a little easier to model around.

Step 3: Make your Sugru model

Make your Sugru sculpture.

To let the LED shine out make sure the sculpture is hollow and put a few holes in it.

How I made the pumpkin:

You will need to mix a few custom colours:
Light orange: I mixed 1 white Sugru pack, two yellow and a small amount of red.
Slightly darker orange: Take a bit of light orange and add a bit more red.
Brown: Mix a bit of blue yellow and red.

Make a hollow dome with the light orange Sugru.

Add thin lines of dark orange to add the hi lights, blend in with a pointed shaping tool (small screwdriver).

Make the dome a bit more pumpkin shaped.

Use the brown Sugru mix to make the stalk.

Poke in the eye and mouth holes.

Test on the LED tea light.
