Ghostly Pumpkins


Want to make a different type of jack-o-lantern this year? Ghost pumpkins are a great idea, and sooo easy. Just look how cute they are next to a regular old jack-o-lantern. Here’s how:

  1. Start by cutting a hole in the bottom of the pumpkin, then hollow the pumpkin out just like normal.
  2. Then put the plug back in the bottom, and then paint the entire thing white with craft paint. Let it dry completely. Repeat if you can see through the paint in any places.
  3. Use a pencil to sketch two ovals for eyes and a misshapen long oval for the mouth.
  4. Use a carving knife to cut the holes. Be careful not the chip any of the paint around the eyes and mouth, while cutting.
  5. Then, put a tea-light in it and watch it glow!
