To make this I used the standard paper mache recipe One part water to two parts flour and a pinch of salt. I made the pumpkin around a mixing bowl I have made two halves and taped them together to form the "circle" part of the pumkin. Tor the stem I just folded a postcard fan style until I got the desired shape and then paper mached over 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 make it easier: )
The perfect non-traditional sparkly Pumpkin!
