creative pumpkin decorating ideas please

krispykrispy Posts: 320Registered Users
my work is having a contest to decorate a 7 lb pumpkin creatively. I am not at all artsy-craftsy or creative AND i'm competing with 3 people (twenty-somethings vs. my age 52)from the art dept! I am a LEO and I want to win :compress:
Any thoughts? We can carve, paint, add sequins, etc...
Thanks!

Best combo so far:
SheaMosture Curl and shine milk , Ouidad heat and humidity gel

    last year, i got a white pumpkin and pinned stretch lace ribbon all over it, then spray painted it black. when i took the ribbon off, there was a lacy design painted all over. the best part is that the squirrels didn't want to eat it because of the paint, so it lasted through the season until i put it in the compost pile later in November.

    But seriously, you can google it or look on pinterest. Since it's a contest for your job, I think it would be funny if the pumpkin looked was decorated to look like a beleaguered office worker! Or a celebrity!

    What industry are you in? Maybe something along those lines?


    I think the drilled ones are really neat, and would be easy to do.

    i also have a white craft pumpkin from Michael's and i used thin black ribbon to outline all the spines on it.

    when i put it out next week, i'll have to take a photo.
