Corpsing A Pumpkin

You’ve corpsed a skeleton so why haven’t you corpsed a pumpkin?  Seriously.  Foam pumpkins look great when they’re carved up, but they look even better after a quick corpsification, just ask kloey74 who posted the My Creepy Pumpkin Tutorial over at The HalloweenForum.  The foam pumpkin that she modified looks amazing, and when you consider how many Halloween props require a foam pumpkin you’d be foolish not to try something new.

The process is simple, just take your carved foam pumpkin and apply a little mod podge around it.  Once it dries, apply some unwrapped cotton balls around the surface.


Once you’ve got the cotton balls spread around you’re going to add another layer of mod podge to it and it will be ready for painting.


Kloey74 went with a base coat of black sprat paint and then applied a coat of orangish/brown paint over it.


The finished pumpkin looks like it’s been sitting on my front stoop for a few weeks too long, but it still smells as fresh as the day you bought it!
