    Great little project. I would suggest to keep your fangs from popping out, gently push the edge of the upper teeth into the flesh of the pumpkin. That way it is secured a little better. Also, don't be afraid to cut small and then make it bigger if need be! Better than having a gaping [filtered word] that your teeth don't fit into.

    This looks so great. I did not have red tipped pins so I hot glue gunned plastic rhinestones we had. Also the fangs were 19cents at my iParty so I bought quite a few. Great idea!

    I had a better idea to save money on buying those fangs. Just make a slit for a mouth and cut the fangs in two and hot glue them to the pumpkin. You'll get twice as many vampire pumpkins that way. Use the tops for one pumpkin and the bottoms for another.

    You don't need to go out of your way to get "map pins". I just used some of the red ball tipped sewing pins, I had ( from JoAnn's).If you really need the map pins, they have them at Office Max.
