Pumpkin Patch

Pumpkins are the perfect canvas to release your fall flair.

Go Nuts!
Hollow out the pumpkin. Spray with black lacquer paint and let dry. Drill holes in the pumpkin to fit the size of nuts you choose to use. Insert the nuts in the drilled holes. Light your masterpiece with an LED Dot-it light, or battery operated LED micro lights.

  • nuts 2148-753/755pumpkins
  • Dot-it light 3697-971
  • micro lights 5640-163

Spider-kin
Hollow out the pumpkin. Spray with black lacquer paint and let dry. Draw and cut out eyes. Legs: Cut 8 pieces of 1" poly utility pipe into lengths suitable for the size of pumpkin. With caution, use a propane torch to warm the area of the pipe where it should bend to form the legs. The pipe will look slightly glossy when it is perfect for bending. Drill holes in the pumpkin and insert the legs.

Lacy Affair
Cut non-stretch lace in a long oval shape. Spray the back of the lace with spray adhesive and place the lace on a section of pumpkin (we started with a white pumpkin). With black paint, stencil with stencil brush and a dry brush technique. Repeat process until the entire pumpkin is covered.
