How do I make a Pineapple Pumpkin using a real pumpkin?

The first step is to clean off your pumpkin from any dirt or debris (this won’t be an issue if you used a faux pumpkin) and then you can get to spray painting!  

My pumpkin took about 3 coats of yellow paint, just like a piece of furniture might.

After the paint has completely dried, draw a simple checker board pattern on your pumpkin with a gold paint pen.  

My lines were not perfectly straight, but neither is a pumpkin!  So don’t worry about it.

Next, cut your green scrapbook paper into a basic pineapple leaf shape.  I hot glued the paper to a small wooden dowel and then stuck it into my pumpkin at the top.

The result is a fun fruity pumpkin, perfect decor for a party, a very large fruit bowl or sitting outside to scare away the (fruit) ghosts.

I thought an apple pumpkin might be kind of fun, too.  

What do you think?  Should I give it a try?
