Constellation and galaxy decor is a popular idea today and is not only used for everyday decoration, but also incorporated into various Christmas decorations. As we all prepare for Halloween, it's time to check out some galaxy-themed pumpkins. Here are some tutorials for constellations, carved or just decorated.
Carved and drilled pumpkins
A pumpkin constellation is a chic and unusually sophisticated decoration for Halloween. This tutorial shows you how to drill a pumpkin and give it a constellation pattern: you can watch a short video for more details on it. After the painted lines dry, put a coat of Mod Podge mother-of-pearl spray sealer on to give the pumpkins a slight shimmer and voila!
Here is another constellation pumpkin drilled, and you can use a number of strings of lights in the pumpkin, with some being pushed into the holes actually drilled. This looks really beautiful and helps highlight the different constellations when dusk falls or when you keep the pumpkin indoors in a dimly lit room. However, don't worry if this seems either too messy or too fiddly - when it's really dark the pumpkin will glow everywhere and all the stars will appear.
Bring a little bit of night sky to our pumpkin exhibition this year and make some drilled pumpkins with constellations! You can make a couple of smaller pumpkins with different constellations on them, or find a large pumpkin and make a couple of constellations on one pumpkin. Paint them black and mark the constellations with orange for a contrast and a cool look.
Not all jack-o-lanterns are created equal, as evidenced by this carved constellation masterpiece. With a little cunning ambition, a pumpkin, keyhole saw, and a few other things, you can do it yourself! The pumpkin is large and has many constellations at once, or you can opt for a large masterpiece and make smaller pumpkins with different constellations. Have fun carving!
Here's another pumpkin drill that doesn't require a pumpkin painting - just a Scorpio constellation. You can try different constellations that you like and not only use a real pumpkin like this one, but also an artificial one. Put in some small tea lights as they are wide, flat, and light to get a couple into the base of the pumpkins at a time.
This oh-so-simple geometric design adds a modern twist to the classic Halloween jack-o'-lantern. This drilled pumpkin sparkles and shines thanks to a pop of color and your favorite constellation pattern. Creating the perfect drilled pumpkin design has never been easier. With a drill bit, a constellation expression, and some candles, you can enjoy a beautiful constellation design.
This tutorial will show you how to make a real galaxy gourd! The project involves a lot of painting and covering the pumpkin with brightly colored glitter to mimic a galaxy and then drilling it. Make sure you are using the correct lighting so your pumpkin doesn't get too hot. Try LEDs for smaller pumpkins.
Here is a simple tutorial on drilling pumpkins to create a constellation with lights inside. The pumpkin itself is black and the accents are orange, it's a chic and sophisticated black and orange piece for Halloween.
Don't carve pumpkins
This constellation gourd is even simpler: it doesn't require carving or drilling at all. This is a black pumpkin decorated with white pearls of two sizes and white colors - nothing difficult. Just draw your constellation and cover it with white paint marking the stars with white pearls of various sizes.
