This creation took about 3 nights to create the body and half an hour to make the head. You'll need some chicken-wire, a heavy duty cutter, leather gloves, spray adhesive and an ample supply of leaves. For the head you'll need two solar powered garden lamps, some fishing line to hang it and of course - a pumpkin!
Step 1: The Body
Word of warning - use gloves when working with chickenwire.
When your body is finished, stuff it with leaves.
Then coat the outer part with either contact cement or spray on adhesive.
Pad down with leaves, and then in the areas where the chickenwire shows through, simply stuff the wire holes with more leaves.
Step 2: Install
Step 3: The Pumpkin Head
This is the first time I've ever carved a pumpkin - not a traditional thing where I come from... so its a little basic. One key point, the eyes need to be cut in such a way so that they LEDs are supported in the middle.
The solar lamps need to be cut up, all superfluous plastic can be cut away with the same cutting tool you used on the chicken-wire body.
You will need to detach the LEDs from the lamps and solder in some wire extensions. Make sure when you solder the LEDs on to the wire extensions that the leads follow back to the same place on the solar lamp PCB. LED's only work when plug in the right way, but you cant hurt then if you make a mistake - they just wont turn on.
