Studded "Rock Star" Pumpkins
The hardware store provides plenty of inspiration for these pumpkins. Thoughtfully placed nails, brads, wire, spikes, and safety pins become glinting mohawks and piercings.

- Black spray paint
- Painters' tape
- Craft paint
- Nails, studs, brads, and pins
Cover pumpkin with black spray paint, if desired (protect the stems with painters' tape).
Let dry, then use craft paint to make faces.
With a pencil, draw your design, then gently tap nails, studs, brads, and pins into the flesh with a hammer.
Adhere small piercings, such as a nose ring, with superglue.
