Spiders Web Pumpkin

Paint the pumpkin white and allow to dry, you may need two coats of paint. Take the spiders web decoupage paper and cut out around 14 cobwebs. Paint the pumpkin with Deco Mache glue, evenly space the papers and glue down. Glue sequins in groups of three in between the cobwebs.


Glitter Pumpkin

Paint the pumpkin white and allow to dry, draw swirls on with the glitter glue and pearl pens, you can do this free hand, with a stencil or by drawing on them first. Use Pearl pens to add dots around the swirls. Cover the pumpkin stalk with silver glitter paint.


Chalk Board Pumpkin

Paint the pumpkin with black chalkboard paint and allow to dry, draw a pattern on the pumpkin using the chalk pens, start at the top working your way down the pumpkin. Our design was inspired by the day of the dead festival.
