2. Soldering with tin (to the eyes, nose, mouth & weapon grip

3. paint brush 1inc (to glue newspapers)

Step 1: Create a Pumpkin Shape

1. newspaper into a ball shape, size approximately 30cm in diameter with a large head or adjust

3. create a bond with the plastic strap to customize a form as expected

Step 2: Began to Form a Hollow Pumpkin

2. make newsprint into long strips (3cm wide and long length adjusting newspaper)

3. wet the paper using glue and paste on the base pumpkin shape

6. then cut to an image

Step 3: Empty the Contents of the Flask

1. cut the plastic strap and plastic bag wrapping the basic shape pumpkins

2. remove the contents

(the purpose of wrapping the base pumpkin shape is to avoid the making of pumpkin that we make so as not to stick to the basic shapes to be easily removed and the flask was separated between the shape of pumpkins and pumpkin hollow base that we created)

    This is a great looking paper mache pumpkin head!

    I think you've done a pretty good job with this as a step-by-step, but if you had more photos and info to add, you might as well. Very nicely done!

    Thanks seams

    Initially I did not intend to upload Pumpkinhead me because I would not think would happen like this, I made this pumpkin on the sidelines of free time besides busy work office so I do not have time to take a photo per section and its steps but later on I'll try take pictures of some of the material used follows the explanation step by step by using sketches
