A Warm Fuzzy Glow

How do I light my papier mache pumpkins?

This is a question I get asked over and over and the answer is simple and low tech.

The pumpkins are lit with Christmas tree light bulbs, the pumpkins sit on top of clear, white, orange or red bulbs.

The lights are bright enough to illuminate the interior of the pumpkins (which are painted yellow or orange) and using red or orange bulbs help intensify the color.

Your pumpkins are so beautiful...and I like the non flammable option for lighting!!

I did not know thought that you painted the interior orange! I gotta try that.

Nice to visit you my friend. I missed coming to see you.
