I apologize in advance for the crudeness of this post. We crafted a pumpkin that blows chunks….of bubblegum that is….

 Hours of fun…”feeding” Sally bubblegum….and watching it BLAAAA out of her mouth…
 Here is what you will need :
  •  A fake pumpkin
  • Things to decorate the pumpkin (spiders, mop (for hair), eyeballs…whatever you wish.
  • Hot glue
  • Pipe insulation (grey foam material found in the plumbing section. Ours was 1.5 inches and it was 97 cents.
  • Bubblegum or other small candy.
 We got all the decorations at the dollar store.
 Carve the pumpkin as you would a jack o lantern. I used my dremel….cause that’s how I roll.
 We glued the mop head to the top. Awwwww freak out…so chic ,so chic, freakout…(are those the right words?!?! Forgive me if they aren’t ok…)
 Measure your pipe insulation and draw a circle around so you know where to cut the hole and how big to cut it.
 Do the same for the back. Remember, gravity is you friend. You want the hole in the back to be higher than the hole for the mouth. Gum will roll down the pipe insulation and out the mouth.
Push the pipe insulation through the hole in the back and pull it through the mouth.
 Should look like this…something out of Star Wars am I right!?!?
Cut off excess.
Sadly, yes, I speak for fake pumpkins. Move on, people….nothing here to see….
 We had fun hot gluing all the spiders coming out of Sally’s hair and her mouth….ewwwwwwww
A cute sign makes it ok to leave in the dining room…right?!?!
Ah….we are only young once…or you just stay young like me :)
