Step 1: Materials & Tools
A pumpkin of course! I used a white pumpkin for obvious reasons, which can be found at those specialty pumpkin stands that spring up around this time of year, but there's no reason why you can't go with traditional orange. Also I had to use two Pumpkins for this project one large on for the turret body and a smaller one for extra parts(knee caps and gun barrel holder).
8 feet of 3/4 or 1/2 inch PVC pipe - I picked up a 10 foot long piece from Home Depot for less than $2. you will only need 8 feet(the other two feet were used for the Wheatley pumpkin)
3 x "L" shaped PVC connectors (see pictures for reference)
1 x three way PVC connector (see pictures for reference)
1x four-way PVC connector (see pictures for reference)
1 x PVC cap (see pictures for reference)
Black spray paint
LED tap light
Saw or dremel
