Cut the bottoms off two bottles, and insert one bottle into the other.
Take paper and follow the bumps on the bottle to make the pumpkin's ridges.
Fill in the gaps between the ridges with a smaller amount of paper to round it out.
If you want a smoother pumpkin, fill the gaps so they are almost the same thickness as the ridges.
Keep adding paper until you get the shape you want.
Don't forget to add a stem! Cover with paper mache and allow to dry.
You can leave your pumpkin as is and paint it now, or apply a layer of paper mache clay over top.
I applied a chunky mixture made of egg cartons all over the pumpkin, and smoothed it out with some paper mache paste.
Wait till dry, this could take several days.
Apply a coat of white base paint or gesso if desired or just start painting.
Both pumpkins were made from the same base steps, and have entirely different looks.
The pumpkin on the left is the one with paper mache clay on it, the one on the right is just several layers of paper mache.
Thanks for watching!!.
