Pumpkin decorating ideas for an impressive Halloween party08 October 2015
Let’s decorate for Halloween this season with these new, fun and impressive ideas for pumpkins!
Firstly, using a marker to draw a grid onto a pumpkin and paint the squares alternatively black and white. After letting them dry, using hot glue to attach plastic chess pieces onto your board.
Cut off the top third of a large pumpkin, then scoop out the flesh and seeds. Paint a design, like skull and crossbones, or “Cheers!” onto the front of the pumpkin using paint or permanent markers. Finally, place a bowl filled with ice inside the pumpkin to cool beer or wine bottles.
Paint the pumpkin white, let dry. Carve out large eyes, a heart-shaped nose and “hollowed” cheeks. Use craft glue to apply M&Ms, candy corn around the eyes, square white gum for teeth and red color as outlines.
Hollow out three large pumpkins and place them side-by-side. Paint a solid, black skyline across all three pumpkins, painting your skyscraper on the middle, tallest pumpkin. Let dry. Drill holes into each building for “windows” and illuminate with an electronic votive candle.
