DIY Personalized Message Pumpkin

Introduction: DIY Personalized Message Pumpkin

In this Instructable I will explain how to make a DIY Personalized Message Pumpkin. In October do you carve pumpkins? I carve pumpkins every year and I am not creative and can never figure out what to carve. This year I decided to glue candy corn all over my pumpkin and write my name on it. While you make this personalized pumpkin you don’t have to do the nasty part of getting all of the seeds out of it. Have fun!

Follow my steps below to make your own!

Step 1: Get Your Materials

The supplies you will need for a DIY Personalized Message Pumpkin :

- Pumpkin

- Candy corn

- Hot glue gun

- Hot glue sticks

- Pencil

- Marker

- Paint

- Paintbrushes

- Paint palette

Step 2: Write Your Personalized Message

Second you will want to get your pencil and write on your pumpkin the message of your choice. You can make it however big or small you would like it.

Step 3: Go Over Your Personalized Message

When you are done writing your message and you like it then go over it with a marker so it pops out and you can see it better.

Step 4: Plug the Hot Glue in

Next you will plug your hot glue gun in and get your hot glue sticks and put them in the gun.

Step 5: Candy Corn the Pumpkin

Start hot gluing the candy corn all over the pumpkin except the personalized message that you wrote.

Step 6: Pour the Paint

Now that you are finished covering your pumpkin with candy corn then you will want to get your paint palette and paint. Pour the paint onto the palette.

Step 7: Paint

    My understanding is that this comment space is for positive, constructive feedback. Based on that, I would say that your comment (carter.boland) is the real disgrace. I think this project is an interesting attempt at doing something new by combining two fall favorites. Also, candy corn is mediocre at best.
