So my husband and I carved our pumpkins a little early. :) Why you wonder? Because these are our little Pet Pumpkin Rocks and they will last until Halloween!
So these are SUPER easy to make. You know me, I keep my projects short and simple. The longest time for this one is waiting for the paint to dry.
Here’s what you need:
1 can each Orange and Green Spray paint
Various sizes and shapes medium sized rocks for the pumpkins
Smaller rocks for the stems
Sharpie Permanent Marker
To get started, wash and scrub your rocks well and let them dry. Then paint them their respective colors. (This was the hardest part…waiting for them to dry!)
After they are dry, use your Sharpie to “carve” the pumpkins. It’s ok if your rocks aren’t perfectly round. Just use their shape to inspire your carvings. The pixelated face is one my husband did, see how the rock is almost a rectangle. And the happy toothy grin on the one next to it was done on a different side of the rock.
(To keep it as realistic as possible you can also use a yellow paint pen and make sure that the shapes you use are actually ones that you would carve.) Then use the E6000 adhesive to add the stems to your pet pumpkins and you’re finished. If you’re putting these outside, spray a clear coat of finish to protect your carving.
If you make your own I’d love to post a link here for others to enjoy. Just let me know when you post the picture and I’ll link it right up!
And… here’s a sneak peek of the tutorial for Tuesday! Enjoy!
