  2. Paint it with white acrylic; let dry.
  3. Use permanent marker to draw an iris, pupil, and veins onto a press-on closet light.

Then, what lights do you put inside a pumpkin?

Tiny tea lights are the candles of choice if you're a fan of the traditionally best way to light a pumpkin.

Likewise, can you put tea lights in a pumpkin? Open flames always have to be carefully watched, but when that flame is contained in an easily kickable, hollowed-out pumpkin, it can pose a hazard. Instead of that votive candle or tea light, you may want to opt for one of the many alternatives, like a battery-operated LED light or a glow stick.

Subsequently, one may also ask, how do you light up a pumpkin?

Use candles.

  1. For the pumpkin with a simple base hole: Light the candle first.
  2. Place the pumpkin straight over the candle wherever you'd like the pumpkin sitting.
  3. For the pumpkin with the top lid: don't try to light the candle first and then stick it down inside.
  4. Light the candle.

Can you leave the lid on a pumpkin?

Set the pumpkin in a location for maximum visibility, such as on a porch step. Remove its lid and light the candles with a long-handled lighter, such as the type used to light barbecue grills or candles. Replace the lid.
