Using hot glue, place strings of sequins going about halfway down the pumpkin. Next, go horizontal with curved lines to complete the cobweb. A spider is optional but encouraged!

9.Chalkboard Pumpkins

Chalkboard pumpkins are easy breezy to make.

The paint is just tender on real pumpkins. To help with that, I suggest SANDING a real pumpkin to take some of that waxy finish off. Yes I know, sanding a vegetable seems weird but it will help for the chalkboard paint to not scratch off with chalk.

I also suggest PRIMING your pumpkins. Using a DARK GRAY primer under black chalkboard paint is easiest and makes the chalkboard paint cover better.

10.Try adding some hair

Adding some hair covers the stem, which will make your pumpkins look a little less like gourds and more like people.
