Rosie and Jewel had "a blast" using a blow dryer to create these super cool pumpkins.  The process was truly mesmerizing, and the final result out-of-this-world!  Are you ready to make your own?

Display your pumpkins in a black-lit window, or place them on your porch with a blacklight blub in place of your regular porch light.  

Rosie & Jewel also loved making their pumpkins glow using their blacklight flashlights.
