Looking for a fun last minute pumpkin idea? How about a fun Star Wars BB-8 pumpkin? I couldn’t help picking up a couple of white pumpkins last weekend at the Marana Pumpkin Patch. I knew I could pull off an easy BB-8 pumpkin similar to Elliot’s BB-8 costume!
Easy BB-8 Pumpkin Supplies:
- 1 medium white pumpkin
- 1 small white pumpkin
- orange, black, and silver duct tape
- parchment paper
- glue gun
- BB-8 decal templates
Print a few pictures of BB-8’s designs to use as templates for the decals. Cutting designs out of duct tape is really easy if you use the parchment paper trick. Trace the designs onto parchment paper and then cover the other side with duct tape. Turn it back over and cut out your design. The duct tape will easily peel away from the parchment paper, ready to be applied to your pumpkin.
Using pictures of the real BB-8 online, apply black, silver and orange duct tape. I attached BB-8’s head (small pumpkin) to his body. Done!
