I've wanted to make a pumpkinrot sentinel for awhile but never got around to it. I had a few of those foam pumpkins from the Dollar Tree and decided to try my hand at a scaled down version. I think it'll be about 4 feet tall when finished. Here is that start, its head. I tried for a bit of a rotten look and painted the inside of it yellow.

Great idea! I am attempting to make my first batch of paper mache pumpkins and I've been working on them for over a month. At this rate, I really need some fill-ins that I can knock out quickly and this might be the way to go. Thanks for sharing!

I've had mixed results with making my own pumpkins, if it wasn't for the orange paint some of them couldn't even be called pumpkins.

Just a tip, the hands from the Dollar Tree can be heated with a heat gun and you can change them around a bit. So you don't have to cut them up. They're more stable this way.

I've tried that before but I didn't like the results, this gave me a bit more control on how the fingers were positioned. I've removed the pumpkin head it has and I'm going to get a larger one to use, it just looked silly with the small one.

Here are a few more pictures, you can see my dog howling in the background, guess he can't wait for Halloween either.

At night with a tea candle in its head and another in its lantern it is perfect for greeting people.
