This is my submission for the Trick your Pumpkin contest at Plaid! The rules are simple you must make a pumpkin that is 3 dimensional using plaid products. I decided to make a pumpkin witches cauldron candy bowl! Here it is with tutorial!
Start with a large carvable pumpkin. I used a white one as I thought it would be easier to paint.
If you don't want to cut it yourself find an available husband to help. Mine cut the top off with a rotozip.. quick, easy and painless!
Then I painted the pumpkin black.
Next I cut paper in the shape of potion drips and painted it purple.
Once the paint dried I then applied it to the cauldron using Mod Podge. Then I covered the entire pumpkin with Mod Podge sparkle.
Once the Mod Podge was dry I used scrapbook paper and my trusty Cricut to cut out the words Witches Cauldron Co. I Mod Podged this around a picture of a witch flying on her broom.
Fill the cauldron with the candy of your choice and display!
I am going to display mine with a witchy mirror that I made. My trick or treaters will be able to see themselves as a witch and eat her candy too!
Happy Trick or Treating!
