Here’s a cute little pumpkin idea that will have your pumpkin lasting longer. Instead of carving it, cover it in candy corn pieces. For an everlasting piece, glue the candy pieces to a plastic pumpkin and cover everything with modge podge.
Just use a glue gun to attach the pieces and leave the pumpkin blank to make the face shape, if you’d like.
I recommend you start with a small pumpkin to see if you like the results. And don’t buy the good candy corn for this… just get the cheap stuff. You can also get different types of candy corn (regular, chocolate etc) and create all sorts of fun designs.
