Pumpkin eater


  Peter, peter pumpkin eater,
had a wife but couldn't keep her;

he put her in a pumpkin shell 
And there he kept her very well.

would you like to make one ?

you're need  a paper mache pumpkin  , cut in half 
black and cream coloured paint
pages from a book 
 lots of glitter
fall picks, leaves , acorns  crows   

first cut the paper mache pumpkin in half , I used a craft knife.  paint the outside black and the inside cream . Let dry

now paper mache the inside with torn pieces of the old book pages  while still wet, sprinkle with sliver glitter.  Let dry.

Cut out a moon image , ink the edges and using some foam dots to add dimension glue to the back of the pumpkin.   Then add a creepy house using foam dots again and glue it to the moon .. you want a layers look to add dimension to your scene 

 now glue down moss around the house. 

Pull the fall flora picks apart until you have two or three stems.... twist them to make a tree shape .... glue into your scene 

Now add pumpkin images and 3D pumpkins , acorns , mushrooms  etc.
  lastly add Peter or his wife 

 the inside is done 

Now the edge needs to be covered, I used a long strip of black tulle  and hot glued it around to hide the edge.( watch your fingers with the hot glue )    

Nearly finished 

just add some more of the pick stems, leaves , acorns  and a crow to the top of the pumpkin

 you now have a spooky pumpkin


hugs Wendy
