While trolling the blog-o-verse a few weeks ago I ran across a reference to the Edward Cullen pumpkin stencil on Ultimate Pumpkin Stencils. What did I say to myself? Hale yes! I am getting me an Edward pumpkin. Of course, it would have to be a white pumpkin. And sparkly.
When we all traveled to choose our pumpkins on Columbus day, I did indeed choose a white pumpkin for myself. However, I really didn't like the idea of Pumpkin Edward getting all full of fruit flies, turning moldy and shriveling up. He's supposed to be immortal, you know? So what else could be essentially immortal than a faux pumpkin made in China from foam! I bet that will outlast me AND my children. And probably their children too. So! Off to Michaels I went, and came home with this:
Did you know they made Sparkle Mod Podge? I didn't, but I do now! It's great! This weekend I purchased my pumpkin stencil (there is a free one out there, but I thought this one was more 'Edward') & got to work. Here's a close up, taken indoors. It's really hard to get the 'sparkle' to show up in pictures - plus I have no idea what I'm doing, and I used my iphone - bear with me.
Here he is outside, all carved, and with four coats of Sparkle Mod Podge
And finally, all lit up! I think it turned out pretty well :)
I'm debating whether to put it outside on Halloween with the other pumpkins. Don't really want him wandering off, you know.
