Papier Mache Pumpkin 040 Jack O’ Lantern

Some people say this pumpkin was conjured up by an evil spellcaster living on the fringes of a rotting swamp but the truth is that it was built in my small shop in Midland, Michigan.

This Halloween forget the mass produced decorations and opt for something that will make your holiday décor really special.

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.
