Pumpkin Door Decor

A friend of mine loves Halloween and invited me over to help make some 
super spooky pumpkin "trees" for her front door. Here's what we came up with...
Sharpie Pens
Pumpkin Carving Knives similar here
Hot Glue Gun
Plastic pumpkins (Michaels or Target

1. We stacked up our pumpkin "trees" to make sure they would balance. 
2. We took our handy dandy pumpkin carving tools and started to cover out the tops of the bottom two pumpkins 
so that they would stack easier when glued together and most importantly, so that the light would shine all the way through all three pumpkins. 
3. We carved out a star/moon in the smallest pumpkin.
4. We took sharpies and drew our own "spooky trees that went all the way up our pumpkins. 
5. We took a dremel and drilled holes on the the bottom two pumpkins 
around the trees to look like "stars."
