So, the Dollar Tree has these little babies in stock and priced for wanton crazed crafts.
So what do you feel like doing to them?
Well here was our first impulse...hellooooooooo, Rustoleum!
Nothing like a shiny blank black canvas, eh?
Cut out the bottom with a serrated knife, making an opening large enough for a light source.
No candles, guys.
I went with Dollar Tree tap lights.
How's that for bright?
Now you'll need flat backed marbles, gems, or any translucent embellishment.
Drill or poke a whole buncha holes in the foam pumpkin.
Hot glue a gem over each hole.
You see where this is going, don't you?
Poke and glue to fill any gaps.
Turn on your light and inspect in a dark hallway.
I also got a glittery vine to poke near the stem.
Now, let's clean up those glue webs and get project number 2 under way!
