I won a Free singing pumpkin animation today on Facebook! I chose “Dead Man’s Party” to add to the other 8 animations that we have for our Pumpkin PATCH and the Boo Brothers singing pumpkin concert.
Since the Halloween of 2013 we have included these singing pumpkins in our graveyard haunt. I often get asked if I animated them. I am not the animator, but John Nielson who manages the Halloween Fun and Christmas Magic Facebook page IS the talented animator behind the Disneyesque Singing Pumpkins that I use. He also has Singing Snowman animations and animations that you can project onto a wall, your garage door, or other flat surfaces. Check out his website and his Facebook page to find out how you can add your own singing pumpkin concert to your Halloween haunt.
Scott Stoll at Stolloween.com finished my “undead” pumpkin a couple of weeks ago and I received him in the mail this week. It is an amazing work of art and I am honored to have won the contest. For complete instructions on how he finished it visit his post about it here.
I am so excited to have won an authentic Scott Stoll pumpkin prop. My entry is for “a ground breaking, undead pumpkin, pushing itself out of the ground with its rotting vine arms.” I will post pictures when the prop arrives. Thank you, Scott Stoll.
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.
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.
