TUTORIAL ON HOW TO MAKE A “MIRRORED PUMPKIN” WITHOUT MIRRORS 

Take the foam pumpkins and apply two coats of white acrylic paint. I advise you that although the temptation to paint it with spray paint by the fact that it is faster the truth is that you can end up ruining the pumpkin since certain spray paints when they make contact with the foam (pumpkin material) melts it .

While the paint is drying, start cutting out the center of the plastic tray. You will only use the center since the edges have curves and we will not use it in this tutorial.

Cut into stripes and then you will cut those strips into small irregular pieces.

Start by gluing the pieces near the steam area. If you look at the pumpkin it has a circle at the top and that’s where you will start. When you are gluing them, try to place them with the larger flat side on the edge to emphasize that circle that originally comes with the pumpkin.

Then you are going to glue two pieces with their flat side inward, to mark the natural lines or grooves of the pumpkin.

Fill the center of the pumpkin and continue marking the grooves on the sides. Then you continue filling all the spaces until the pumpkin is completely covered.
