Papier Mache Pumpkin 035 Wired




Don’t know if it was too much caffeine or just a moment of pure Halloween giddiness but the result is this loopy eyed papier mache pumpkin that is sure to add a bit of whimsy to your holiday d├ęcor. Forget the mass produced Halloween decorations and add some originality to your next October 31st.

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: 14 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.

Available on Etsy.
