Pumpkins Papier Mache Pumpkins – Part 2 October 30, 2009 Scott Leave a comment I drew half of the face and then used the cut out pieces to make the other side symetrical. You can see all of the layers of paper in this picture. I used 1" to 1 1/2" wide pieces of cardboard secured with hot glue to accentuate the features that I had cut out. This process takes a very, very long time. That is why I will not be having these pumpkins in my display this year. Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.
