Step 1: Remove Stickers

  • Remove lid, discard
  • Remove the stickers on the Pods container.  Best way is to soak them in water for several hours and then take the dull end of a butter knife or some other dull tool and remove the paper sticker  (trying not to scratch the container) .
  • Take the Mr. Clean Eraser and clean the glue residue off the container.
  • Dry the container.

Step 2: Add a Face and Lights

  • Draw your desired face with a Black permanent marker.
  • Push a small tent stake or hanger through the side and out the opening.
  • Put a set of lights in the container and place outside using the stake to keep it on the ground.
Enjoy your cheap pumpkin!
