Galaxy Pumpkin

Although I think it should be called a constellation pumpkin, Michaels calls it a galaxy pumpkin.  Anyway, a photo of it was featured in one of the many emails this week and I loved the way it looked so decided to try and make one myself. The link for the (rather sketchy) instructions is here.

The craft pumpkins were on sale and the had a smaller and different style one I liked better than the one they called for in the instructions which already had a nice stem so I could skip the bit where you made a stem from foil and paper clay.  The paint for the “sky” was also on sale so the cost was under $15 with my employee discount. I really like the way it turned out. 

For reference, here is the way the one in the project instructions looks.  We didn’t have copper paint pens so I went with gold instead.  I was also a bit more accurate with the sky map and much of it is in the right position, although not all of it since it is a pumpkin and not the sky. 🙂
