Every year I get that Martha Stewart Halloween magazine and drool over all the projects.  I have been loving the pumpkins that they carve using a bunch of different drill bits for as long as I can remember.  I had some craft pumpkins, and when I got my vinyl for this month's Glue Arts Halloween project I thought that I'd use them together! 
This is a great project that anyone can make because even if you don't have a die cutting system, you can still cut out circles for the pumpkins.

Supplies Needed:

Glue Arts Car Accents in Apple Cider and Blackout (Or choose other colors that you like. Purple, green, orange and black would be really cute too!)

Assorted craft pumpkins

Manual or electric die cutter or circle templates

Circle dies for manual cutter


1. Cut the vinyl into assorted circle sizes. I used my manual die cutter and a die that had four sizes of circles on it.

2. Stick the circles to the pumpkins and smooth out with your fingertips. If there are creases you can pull the vinyl back up a little and smooth it back out. TIPS: Use the larger circles near the center of the larger pumpkins and the smaller ones to fill in. The curve in the pumpkins at the ends will make it more difficult to get a smooth look on the larger circles.
