Foam Pumpkin Makeover Using Power Tools and Fun Hand Painted Pumpkins

rotozip carved pumpkins
These are foam pumpkins that I carved using my Rotozip spiral saw....so quick and easy. 
I didn't even draw out a pattern before I carved them, I just kind of went for it. 

 I've actually used the Rotozip to carve real pumpkins  and a cat faced pumpkin too.
It worked out pretty well!

I added metal leaves that I already had but repainted and stuck them into the foam pumpkin.
 I also coiled thin copper wire on the end of a pencil, removed and used that for tendrils

hand painted pumpkins
I bought these plain, white foam pumpkins, painted with acrylics
 and sealed with spray sealer

Happy Halloween!
