Here is the video tutorial:

Start by finding some lumpy pumpkins – something with a green tinge would be best!  If you want a more permanent decoration, consider using a dried gourd.   Gourds:  https://amzn.to/2BLjfq2

1.  Glue on eyes and teeth to the pumpkin.  I cut the teeth from some cheap vampire teeth.  I as able to cut them with scissors.  The eyes don’t need to be even, you don’t have to have two and the mouth can be crooked as well.  No two pumpkins will end up alike and that’s the beauty of it.

2.  Once you have attached the eyes and teeth, use your hot glue to build up around the features.  It’s best to watch the video to see how it was done.  I also added some drippy stuff up by the stem.

3.  Once the glue has cooled, you can start to paint.  Use a variety of colors mixed to to create bloody, rotting, bruised looking flesh.  

4.  Let it dry.  I added eye brows to one of the zombies to make him look a little angry.  You can do felt or craft foam eyebrows.  I also made smear marks in random places around the pumpkin, so the rest of it didn’t look forgotten.

That’s it!

Happy Halloween of Zombie Apocalypse!

Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
