Look at him! Doesn’t he look awesome? I had my doubts, but our BB-8 pumpkin actually turned out pretty spot on.
We bought the $10 kit from Target with low expectations. Turns out, that was the right track. With the paint in the kit, this is about how white our pumpkin ended up. The kit recommended a 9-11″ pumpkin. I’d say our pumpkin was in the 8-9″ range? And there was nowhere near enough white paint to get the pumpkin white. I busted out the white spray paint and that worked perfectly. Except it peels a bit if you scratch at it, but that’s to be expected. The girls popped on the accessories fairly easily and, voila! BB-8. Do we add a Darth Vader pumpkin to keep him company?
