Expanding Foam Pumpkin

Introduction: Expanding Foam Pumpkin

About: I am a middle school art teacher. I love teaching kids, and anyone who wants to make art.

What to do with the rest of the expanding foam in the can...make a pumpkin!

Step 1:

Spray out your excess foam into roundish form.  Make it as big or small as you want.  Let it cure over night and make sure it is firm.

Step 2:

Once it has cured and is hard, paint it orange. Put it on the end of a pencil to hold on to so that paint will not get on your hands.

Step 3:

Draw your face.  Use a Sharpie marker.

Step 4:

Carve it carefully with an sharp knife and be careful.  Clean out the inside. 
You can also add a small led light inside.
Happy Halloween.

    Thank you for sharing this!!! I go crazy every year because the Dollar Tree sells out of their foam pumpkins so fast that I can't ever get as many as I need. Happy Halloween 2018
