Papier Mache Pumpkin 019 Topper



“Deep into that darkness peering, long I stood there, wondering, fearing, doubting, dreaming dreams no mortal ever dared to dream before.” -Edgar Allan Poe

Add this one of a kind papier mache pumpkin to the darkness of your next Halloween celebration.

Made from a variety of papier mache techniques this jack o’ lantern is sure to delight children and adults alike….especially when you remove the top revealing two large black flies nestled inside the lid.

 This pumpkin took approximately two weeks and used a variety of recycled materials such as newspaper, cardboard and wire. The pumpkin is hand painted and finished with a variety of oil stains and urethane.

Height: 13 inches
Weight: 5 pounds

This pumpkin is intended for interior use only.

NOTE: The inside of the pumpkin is painted flat black. To illuminate the interior it is suggested that a sheet of yellow or orange craft foam be placed inside the pumpkin to create a nice pumpkin-like glow when lit with a low watt light bulb. Do not use real flames or light bulbs that generate high heat.
