Plastic Pumpkin Luminaries

By:

Instead of throwing away your empty 2-liter soda bottles, recycle them into these fun pumpkin luminaries to light up your Halloween this year, from Krylon.

Plastic Pumpkin Luminaries

Materials:

  • Krylon Fusion for Plastic - Pumpkin (Safety)
  • Krylon Fusion for Plastic - Sunbeam (#2330)
  • Two 2-liter empty plastic soda bottles
  • Con-Tact Paper
  • Scissors
  • Xacto knife
  • Adhesive remover
  • 2 candles
  • Sand
  • Paper towels
  • Newspaper
  • Rubber Gloves (optional)

 

Instructions:

  1. Peel label from empty plastic soda bottle. Use adhesive remover and a paper towel to remove any residue.
     
  2. Wash soda bottles thoroughly; let dry completely.
     
  3. Using Xacto knife, carefully cut off top of bottle. Cut a half-circle out of the back, near the bottom; this will make it easier to add the sand and the candle.
     
  4. Draw facial features on contact paper and cut out. Adhere features to the soda bottle, being careful to firmly seal edges with fingernail.
     
  5. Cover work area with newspaper. Spray soda bottles with Krylon Fusion – one with Pumpkin Orange and the other with Sunbeam. Let dry for 3 hours.
     
  6. When completely dry, carefully peel off contact paper features. (Note: Krylon Fusion will be dry to touch after 15 minutes but should be allowed to cure for at least 24 hours before the luminaries are put into service.)
     
  7. Add sand to base for weight and insert candle. Light and enjoy.
