The inspiration for this came from a magazine I flipped though while in line at the grocery store one day. The pumpkin on the glossy pages was covered in tiny rhinestones which looked great but probably cost more than I was willing to spend. Instead I opted for glossy black puff paint and a few rhinestones accents.
Pumpkin Creatures: Porcupines Use big pumpkins for the porcupines' bodies, and attach the heads with toothpicks. To create quills, push white holiday lights through drilled holes that are slightly smaller than the lights.
Isn't this a cool Halloween Pumpkin Display? (IDEA: I think you could easily make a smaller version out of a tomato cage.) This would look really neat out on the lawn with lights strung through the vines or battery operated tea lights inside each pumpkin.
