Paper mache pumpkins... upcylcing at its best!

I love carving pumkins around Halloween, but i looked in the shps and they where asking 10 each for pumpkins... i can't afford to fill my gardern with them at that price... so i went on a pumkin making frenzy and made almost 20 of them for nothing :)

cheaper, easier, and if like me your the only one in your family who likes pumpkin soup a lot less mess to get rid of.

used normal paper mache techniques for these, basic stuff. took longer to dry between layers then to make or paint or carve them.

I'm making a nightmare before Christmas style display for Halloween this year.. so these are only the firt things to come :)

an old episode of robot chicken comes to mind with these pumpkins, although that could be where they got the idea was from nightmare before christmas. very nicely done, nice detail work.

I don't know why I just thought of this, but I'm going to make a Jack-O-Lantern that looks like the pumpkin from this picture: [link]

Sadly, I have no camera. I would if I could, but I have no way to put it onto my computer.
