Bloody Pumpkins

bloody pumpkins

I've found that over the past couple of years, creepy Halloween items have been seen more and more in the retail and craft stores. I don't know why, but I guess it comes down to this...people just like being scared and the thrill that's associated with it.

So my project "Bloody Pumpkins" is not for the faint of heart. Har har. It's for those who like to live a little more on the dark side. I originally had the drip idea, but I thought fang marks would also make for a nice, spooky pumpkin (I was inspired by True Blood, but Twilight fans might appreciate this one as well). One could also create a cool pumpkin by spattering on the paint with a toothbrush for a Dexter-like blood spray effect. The more blood the better, eh?

Bloody Pumpkins

What you need:

– White pumpkins
– Tulip 3-D Fashion Paint in Bright Red
– cleaning wipes
– construction nail

What you do:
1. Use cleaning wipe or paper towel to clean off pumpkin and remove any dirt/debris.
2. For drip pumpkin, squeeze 3-D Fashion Paint along the pumpkin ridges. Make some drips longer than other for a more random look. Also paint along stem. At bottoms of drips, squeeze a little more paint to look like the blood has coagulated.
3. For fang marks pumpkin, use construction nail to dig 2 small holes into pumpkin about an inch and a half apart. Place tip of 3-D paint into hold you dug out and gently squeeze. Draw a line down from hole and create a bead of paint at end to suggest coagulation.

This will probably be the first and last time you will hear me refer to the word coagulation on my blog. Ha. My creepy/gross side doesn't come out very often.

Check back all this week for Terrorific Tuesday and my 24 Halloween crafts in 24 hours. It will be a swell and spooky week with lots of fun and even prizes!

Until next time Swellions!
