Project Instructions

Step 1

Step 2
Use Mod Podge® to adhere black tissue squares to the stem of the pumpkin.

Step 3
Let Mod Podge® dry overnight.

Step 4
Once dry, use a black paint pen to draw lines following the indentations on the pumpkin.

Step 5
Add lines to create a look of stained glass (see photo).

Step 6
Make facial shapes with black Model Magic®. Place a drop of Elmer’s® glue to the wiggle eyes and push into the Model Magic® eye. Position Model Magic® on the pumpkin and let dry. If you need, add some Elmer’s® glue to the facial shapes to adhere to the pumpkin.
