- Cheap foam pumpkins. I got mine from the dollar tree.
- Paint (acrylic or chalk is fine)
- Glue. I like wood glue because I think it is thicker and dries almost crackly.
- Baking soda
- A cheap craft paint brush
- Cup or old bowl to mix.
For the baking soda mixture, I use about 4-5 tablespoons of baking soda and slowly add in paint until it mixes up smooth enough that you can paint it on with your brush, but is still gritty and a bit lumpy.
