Project Instructions

Using the X-Acto® knife, carefully remove the top stems from the craft pumpkins. This will make it easier to glue together.

Stack pumpkins largest to smallest on top each other and secure with glue.

Make hole on either side of center pumpkin and insert dowel for arms. Secure with glue if needed.

Read all the directions on Rigid Wrap before beginning.

Cut 12 inch pieces to start with. Dip in water and place on pumpkins. Smooth.

Continue to cover the pumpkins until completely covered. Let dry.

Dip cheese cloth in the water from your rigid wrap, remove excess and drape on pumpkin as desired.

Glue large wiggle eyes in place and cover with small piece of rigid wrap. Let dry.

Place small amount of black paint on paper plate, add water to make very diluted paint. Dry brush onto pumpkin as desired.

For the spiders, cut 3 inch pieces of chenille stem and glue four together onto pom pom for spider legs.

Add small wiggle eyes as shown.

Optional: hang Halloween sign from arm.
