I am so bad at “before” pictures, so this is from last year. See the one with the scary face? I took the light cord out and painted it black.

Then I drew some halloween images on book pages.

And cut them out.

I brushed the back of the pages with Mod Podge and applied them to the back of the pumpkin. Then I applied 2 coats of Mod Podge over the top to protect it from the weather.

I decided it needed a little bling. So I applied Mod Podge to the stem and sprinkled black glitter over the top. 

Here it is on the front porch.

And I can turn it around if I want a change.

More on the front porch later. We still need to go to the pumpkin patch.
