Materials and Tools:
Carefully carve a face on your pumpkin. Also, cut a hole about 5-6 inches in diameter on the top and bottom of the pumpkin.
Cut a hole, same size as the one on the bottom of your pumpkin on top of the plastic container. Cut a hole on the side of the plastic container slightly larger than the diameter of your plastic tube.
Hot glue Disco Ball spotlight in the plastic container with the light aiming up the hole on top of the container. Run the cable out the back of the container.
Unfortunately I didn’t get a pic of the spotlight in the prop, so please see the video where it shows the whole process…thanks!!
Align bottom hole on pumpkin and top hole on container and hot glue together.
Hot glue one end of the plastic tube to the plastic container side hole and the other end to the fog tube of your fog machine.
You are done! I told you this was super easy. All you need to do now is find a spot for your prop and use some hay bales, burlap or other pumpkins to hide your plastic container, fog machine and cables.
