Faux Jack

Since I don't have any little rug rats at home and my grandchild is still too young too carve a jack-o-lantern with me, I had to figure out a way to entertain myself. I really wanted to carve this guy out, but it's too early and I didn't want him to rot before I decided to paint him and enjoy him now.
I found this idea on Disney Family Fun and knew I wanted to make him.
He was very easy to make. I drew the outline of the eyes and the mouth with a regular pencil. I filled in with paint pens, yellow then black outline. I cut off all the rings off the spiders and glued them randomly in place.

Pumpkin - $1.99 Aldi
Paint Pens - already had
Spider rings - $1 Dollar Tree
Making a Memory for myself = Pricele$$

  5. Looks like a fun one and definitely less messy than carving. I much rather not even carve them so that I could use them the entire season. Great job!

  6. Don't you love the Aldi's pumpkins? They nice and big and round and $1.99! This is such a cute pumpkin. LOVE the spiders. I bet you had fun making this.

  7. Thank you all for the kind words!!! I'm sad to say that the 'winds came sweeping down the plains' and knocked over the chair I had this guy on and smashed him to pieces!! I didn't even have the heart to take a pic! :-(
