How to create ‘Jack the Pumpkin King’

Updated on June 9, 2015

Materials Needed

  • One small pumpkin (real or fake)

  • One large pumpkin (real or fake)

  • Master’s Touch black acrylic paint

  • Master’s Touch white acrylic paint

  • Rhinestone Glue

  • 2 packages of 5mm clear rhinestones

  • 2 packages of 3mm clear rhinestones

Step One: Start with two pumpkins (TIP: proportion pumpkins to each other), and paint the bigger pumpkin made for the torso completely black. Then paint the smaller one made for the head completely white. (See pictures to below for details).

Step Two: First remove the stem off the larger pumpkin (if the pumpkin is real), then place a rod in the middle until five inches show. Place the smaller pumpkin above the rod and hit in until it rests on top of the torso. If using two fake pumpkins, use a hot glue gun to glue the head to the torso.

Step Three: Either you can use stencils or free hand the eyes, eyebrows, nose, mouth, and tux. Afterwards paint in with black, (TIP: Draw the tux in a heart shape). A great way to color in the facial expressions is with a sharpie acrylic paint marker. It takes less time, less mess, and easy to use.

Six Easy Steps!

Step Four: Paint on his bat tie, or use a rubber bat. If you want, paint some white stripes on the bat for effects. After the paint dries, nail the bat into bottom pumpkin where the top pumpkin intersects. I got my rubber bat during Halloween in the kids costume section.

Step Five: Two ways to create Jack’s pinstripes for his suit, one, paint his pinstripes white using the grooves in the pumpkin. Otherwise, glue rhinestones by alternating 3mm and 5mm, by also following the groves in the pumpkin.(In the picture below displays rhinestones. TIP: Most rhinestone glues dry clear. Make sure to read the instructions for the glue, most glue takes 24 hours to dry.)

Step Six: Then enjoy your magnificent ‘Jack the Pumpkin King!’
