Gauzy Glow Pumpkin for Halloween

Mummify a Halloween pumpkin with strips of cheesecloth and glow-in-the-dark paint.


What You'll Need
  • Cheesecloth
  • Scissors
  • Fabric stiffener
  • Artificial pumpkin
  • Glue gun and hotmelt adhesive
  • 1-inch googly eyes
  • Crafts knife
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Glow-in-the-dark gel paint (We used Plaid Glo Away.)
How to Make It
  1. Cut cheesecloth into 4x12-inch strips. Fold strips in half lengthwise. Apply fabric stiffener, following manufacturer's instructions. Apply strips to pumpkin, leaving the top and bottom of the pumpkin uncovered. Let dry.
  2. Hot-glue eyes to pumpkin.
  3. Cut four 4x6-inch strips of cheesecloth. Fold strips in half lengthwise. Apply fabric stiffener, following manufacturer's instructions.
  4. Cover each eye diagonally so a little of each eye peeks out. Let dry.
  5. Carve out a small mouth from the layers of cheesecloth using a crafts knife. Paint the inside of the mouth black.
  6. Brush glow-in-the-dark gel paint onto cheesecloth. Let dry.
