Constellation and galaxy decor is a popular idea now and it’s used not only for everyday decor, it’s also incorporated into various holiday decor. As we are all getting ready for Halloween, it’s time to have a look at some galaxy-themed pumpkins. Here are some tutorials for constellation pieces, carved or just decorated ones.
Carved And Drilled Pumpkins
A constellation pumpkin is a chic and unusual sophisticated decoration for Halloween. This tutorial will tell you how to drill a pumpkin giving it a constellation pattern: you can watch a short video to find out more details to do that. Once the painted lines had dried, give a coat of Mod Podge pearlized spray sealer to give the pumpkins a slight shimmer and voila!
Here’s another drilled constellation pumpkin, and you may use a string of fairy lights inside the pumpkin, with a few pushed into the actual drilled holes. This really looks beautiful and helps to highlight the different constellations as dusk is falling, or if you are keeping the pumpkin indoors in a dimly lit room. Don’t worry though if that seems either too messy or too fiddly – by the time it is truly dark, the pumpkin will glow all over and all of the stars stand out.
Bring a bit of the night sky to our pumpkin display this year and making some drilled pumpkins with constellations! You can do a bunch of smaller pumpkins with different constellations on them or find a large pumpkin and do a few constellations all on one pumpkin. Paint them black and highlight the constellations with orange for a contrast and a cool look.
Not all jack-o’-lanterns are created equal, as proved by this carved constellation masterpiece. With some crafty ambition, a pumpkin, a keyhole saw, and a few other things, you can make it yourself! The pumpkin is large and it features a lot of constellations at once or you may go for one large masterpiece and make some smaller pumpkins with other constellations. Enjoy carving!
Here’s another pumpkin drilling craft, which doesn’t suppose any pumpkin painting – just a Scorpio constellation. You may try various constellations you like and use not only a real pumpkin like here but also an artificial one. Insert some small tea lights since they are wide, flat, and easy to get a couple at one time into the base of the pumpkins.
This oh-so-easy geometric design adds a modern twist to the classic Halloween jack-o-lantern. This drilled pumpkin twinkles and shines thanks to a pop of paint and your favorite constellation pattern. Creating the perfect drilled pumpkin design has never been so easy. With a drill, a constellation print-out and a few candles, you can enjoy a beautiful constellation design.
This tutorial will tell you how to make a real galaxy pumpkin! The project includes a lot of painting and covering the pumpkin with colorful glitter to imitate a galaxy and then drilling it. Take care to use the appropriate lighting to keep your pumpkin from getting too hot. Try LEDs for smaller pumpkins.
Here’s a simple pumpkin drilling tutorial to make a constellation piece with lights inside. The pumpkin itself is black and the accents are orange ones, it’s a chic and refined black and orange piece for Halloween.
No Carve Pumpkins
This constellation pumpkin is even easier: it doesn’t require any carving or drilling at all. This is a black pumpkin decorated with white beads of two sizes and white paints – nothing difficult. Just draw your constellation and cover it with white paint marking the stars with white beads of various sizes.
