Tattoo Pumpkins

  1. Cut out the tattoo and peel off the plastic.
  2. Place it on the surface of your pumpkin and apply a warm damp cloth to the back and hold it for a few seconds.
  3. Remove the paper and continue around until your design is complete.  

Metal Studded Pumpkins

Floral Pumpkins

  1. Start by cutting your flowers leaving about 2” on each stem.
  2. Take a screwdriver and puncture a hole all the way through the skin.
  3. Place your flower inside and continue around your pumpkin in any desired pattern.
