  1. Cut cheesecloth into several strips, 4" X 12". Fold in half lengthwise. Follow the instructions on the Stiffy bottle. Apply strips to pumpkin leaving the top and bottom not covered. Allow to dry.
  2. Hot glue eyes to pumpkin. Cut four more pieces about 4" X 6" and fold lengthwise. Cover the top and bottom of each eye in a diagonal so you can see a little of the eyes peeking out at you. Allow to dry.

  4. Brush the Glo Away on top of the cheesecloth for in-the-dark effects.
