Papier-mâché pumpkins; Part 2

Yay! One week later and our fabulous papier-mâché pumpkins are done! This was a fun and inexpensive project and requires absolutely no talent whatsoever. Plus, most of the supplies are probably things you already have in your home which makes it even easier. (Supply list below.)

The kid ran the camera for most of the project, including the video segments, so check out the step-by-step photo gallery below to see (1) how you can make your own pumpkins and (2) what an amazing talent the kid has with a camera.

(In the photo: My pumpkin is on the left; The Kid’s is on the right. And that’s Schrodie sniffin’ around.)

Here’s another video for your enjoyment. And if you missed the first set of videos you can check them out here or visit my YouTube channel. Yay!

Supply list for two pumpkins:

  • Newspaper
  • Cardboard
  • 2 cereal boxes (or similar weight material)
  • 1 paper towel cardboard roll thingy
  • Stapler and staples
  • Duct tape
  • Masking tape
  • Flour
  • Water
  • Paint
  • Paint brush
  • A fun CD of your choosing
  • A fun attitude! (This can be faked to start out if needed and at some point in the project, it will become genuine!)
