Vampire Pumpkins

How to Make a Vampire Pumpkin
These cute little vampire pumpkins have been floating all over the internet and Pinterest and I knew that I just had to make some of my own.  I wanted to take mine to work so that meant that I couldn’t use real pumpkins.  I found these 2 cute little Styrofoam pumpkins at good ol’ Wal-Mart for $.98 and a huge pack of teeth for $1.49.

I printed off the mouth template from and cut out the mouth on the pumpkins.  The tricky part was knowing how deep to go, so I kept trying the teeth in until I thought they fit right.

I originally tried coloring the inside of the mouth with a permanent marker because I didn’t have any black paint (yeah, I know, who doesn’t have black paint lying around)  But I couldn’t get into all of the nooks and crannies so I broke down and went back to the store and bought some black acrylic paint.  (I forgot to take a picture after I painted them – oops)

After the mouths were painted and dried, I put the teeth in and then used large red and black brads and just pushed them straight in.

    Aww scary and cute at the same time!
    I’m suffering from a bit of Pumpkin jealousy at the moment, Pinterest, My Blogs Reading list and my Facebook news feed are all full of trips to the pumpkin patch, pumpkin crafts and recipes.. making me wish I came from a country that embraced the pumpkin the way you guys do!!
