Scary Paper Mache Pumpkin
Paper Mache Pumpkin

To make this I used the standard paper mache recipe: One part water to two parts flour and a pinch of salt. I formed the pumpkin around a mixing bowl I had already covered in plastic wrap. I have made two halves and taped them together to form the "circle" part of the pumpkin. For the stem I just folded a postcard accordion style until I got the desired shape and then paper mached over it. Afterwards I crumbled and wrinkled the top layer of newspaper to get this rotting effect. I painted a darker base color and then hit the raised ridges with a brighter orange to highlight it. *note* If you would like to paint the inside of the pumpkin ( so you can't see the newspaper) do it before taping it together- I'm sure that would have made it easier: )
