Step 1: Paint Your Gas Bottle
I started with a camp stove propane bottle that was already yellow from the factory, but it wasn't quite orange enough to be a pumpkin. I gave it a wipe with turpentine to remove any grease and dirt, and then sprayed it with orange paint.
To protect the gas connections from being painted I used the spray can lid to cover them.
To create the face I sourced an off-cut of black adhesive vinyl from a local sign company for $4.
Step 2: Decorate Your Gas Bottle
Once I'd created my Jack o' Lantern design I printed it out and taped it over the black vinyl and then cut the design out with scissors. As I didn't have any transfer tape I then had apply each of the vinyl pieces separately onto the bottle.
Step 3: Enjoy Your Jack O' Bottle
I hope the Jack o' Bottle adds some extra fun to your Halloween festivities.
