It’s pumpkin season! No, I’m not talking about pumpkin flavor everything, I’m talking about pumpkin decorating. Whether you choose to carve or decorate a real or faux pumpkin, it’s time to show your creative side with your very own pumpkin design.
How would you like to win up to $500 for your pumpkin design? The folks at HomeTeam Pest Defense have launched a pumpkin decorating contest that is sure to inspire you to get your pumpkin on.
No-Carve Hot Glue Spider Web Pumpkin
I am so pleased with how my hot glue spider web pumpkin turned out. It was easy and quick too. Although I decided to use a real pumpkin for my creation (mostly so I can eat the pumpkin seeds later), it would work well on a faux pumpkin too.
- Pumpkin (real or faux)
- Hot glue gun
- Silver paint
- Plastic spider rings
Begin by drawing a spider web on your pumpkin with a pencil.
Then trace the spider web with a line of hot glue. I found it easiest to lay the pumpkin in my lap to do this. Start with the straight lines and then move to the curves.
Once the glue has fully cooled, paint the hot glue lines silver. Again, I found it easiest to lay the pumpkin in my lap. Be gentle because the hot glue will peel off the pumpkin if you aren’t careful.
Cut the ring off the back of a couple of plastic spiders and hot glue in place on the spider web.
