Spooky Double Pumpkin Eyeball - finished craftYou can make this creepy eyeball using a small white pumpkin inside of a bigger warty pumpkin. I used a simple pumpkin carving kit and some acrylic paints. This is a great Halloween craft for all!!


When choosing your pumpkins, make sure your white one is smaller than the orange one. I used a cheap red lipliner to draw in the eyeball veins because it slides on smoothly on the pumpkin surface, but stays on nicely.

Total Time: 70 minutes plus dry time

Yield: 1 eyeball


  • 1 medium warty orange pumpkin
  • marker
  • pumpkin carving knife
  • pumpkin scraper
  • 1 small white pumpkin
  • measure tape
  • acrylic paints (blue, teal, gold, black, white)
  • paintbrushes
  • tea towel or paper towels
  • cheap red lipliner
