Disclosure: Thanks DreamWorks for the free DreamWorks The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants Hack-A-Ween DIY mailer.
Tuesday 10.8 The Spooky Tale of Captain Underpants Hack-A-Ween is premiering on Netflix! So to celebrate DreamWorks sent us the mailer mentioned above.
Currently, we are living in a hotel while we are waiting for our house to be rebuilt from our fire last October 12th. When the mailer arrived at my son's I didn't know it was there until Saturday. As my son brought our mail to our Annual Family Apple Pressing day at my sisters.
We secured a pumpkin for a low price of $4. That is a deal if you ask me. We set up a flat box my husband bought when he went to purchase the pumpkin and I got to work at recreating Captain Underpants with the sheet that came with the supplies (white & black paint, paintbrushes, a white pair of tighty whities, and some red cloth for the cape.)
- First I put the underwear on my pumpkin (you can do this either at the beginning or at the end).
- I hand drew the eyes, nose, eyebrows, mouth/teeth and ears with a pen as we didn't have a pencil in the hotel room. You can use either a pencil or a pen as when you paint it will cover whatever you drew.
- Once I drew his face/ears I took out the 2nd to smallest paintbrush of the package and painted over the outline for everything that I wanted black.
- Next, I painted with the smallest paintbrush to fill in his teeth with white paint.
- After a few minutes, I went over the white again to darken the whites of the teeth so that the orange didn't show through.
- I then went through and darkened up my outlines between the teeth with the black just to make the white stand out a bit.
- Once I knew it was dry I tied the “cape” around between the lower area of his mouth and above his underpants.
- Waa-laa I now have a Captain Underpants Haloween Spooky Pumpkin.
