Edited here to add instructions on the pumpkin box.
HERE:::HEYYYYYYYYYYYYY TRYING TO GET your ATTENTION ::::
Some of you emailed me for a play by on this project so here goes. It is very easy. If I can do it, you can.
Paper mache box....bought at Walmart .97 cents.
a menagerie of Fall or Halloween papers.
a styrofoam ball or do like I did and use an old christmas ornament. I liked mine cuz they were free at a garage sale and it was smoother than the usual ones you get at craft stores.
orange paint , black paint, I used brown shoe polish to AGE the pumpkin
Hot glue gun
rubons, tags, inks to distress, anything else you want to embellish your pumpkin man..the sky is the limit.
I started by using my box as a template and tracing with a pencil onto my paper. Cut it out and used my Elmers to adhere my paper. I painted the styro ball orange let it dry and than used a black pen to make my face and went over it with black paint. I than used the shoe polish to AGE him. NOw to make his hat I took a paper mache cone I already had and wrapped the paper I chose around it to form the hat. I distressed the hat with inks. Glued it and than mod podged it to protect and stiffen it. I added some crepe paper to the top and bottom and added tinsel pipe cleaner. I hot glued the hat onto the styro ball and than hotglued the ball onto the box. I made a little tag and added a vintage type rubon onto it. I took a pen and wrapped my copper wire around it to spiral it and than took it off and wrapped it around the pumpkin ball with the tag. There you have it. Very easy and a lot of fun. I have another I did doing something different as the "body" of the pumpkin. I am leaving to go out of town for a funeral...hopefullly I didn't forget anything. I really hope some of ya try this and I hope to see pics of your projects! cherry
