What advice would you give someone starting this project? Take your time with the paper cutting. People love to get up close to detailed pumpkins like this and will scrutinize every part. Neatness counts :)

Where did you find the patterns of the paper skelletons? These would be cute to use for Day-of-the-Dead themes? You mind sharing where you got the patterns for the skelletons? Thanks for showing us. Cookie

Actually, I just did a Google image search for 'skeleton' and found one that suited my needs (where the skull was turned slightly to the side). I then saved the image and printed in the size I wanted (on white card stock) and cut out using an x-acto knife. Since I needed them 'thumbing' a ride I cut the arms at the elbow joints and glued the forearms in the pose I needed. It's all just cut and paste really once you find the skeleton pose you want.

I also painted them lightly with white acrylic and sprinkled with Martha Stewart's fine glow-in-the-dark glitter once I had them in the pose I needed for this project.
