Hi, I'm Paula Pierce, and this is how to decorate a pumpkin like a pirate. Sometimes you want to avoid the mess of a traditional carved pumpkin, and you just might want to decorate it instead. Characters are a really fun way to decorate your pumpkin, and today I'm gonna show you how to decorate a pumpkin like a pirate. To do this project you will need a pumpkin whatever size you would like. You will need a brush and some craft paint, a pirate hat, an eye patch, and a large hoop earring and a pin or a tack. The first thing you need to do is paint on a face. For a mean face you can angle the eyebrows up, and a mustache or a beard will always look good on a pirate. Place the eye patch on your pumpkin over one of his eyes, place the hat on the top of the pumpkin. If you don't have a hat that looks like a pirate, you can make a simple hat out of newspaper. Pin on your earring and you're done. Argh!
