Happy Halloween! A.k.a every child's most favorite time of the year. Well that is very true at least in our household, where grown ups and kids alike are 100% ready for watching It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown for the hundredth time and putting the finishing touches on this years halloween costumes.

This year we have Follies in the mix ;) so what better way to spend your weekend than crafting your own pumpkin with Follies and LEDs. Below the step by step guide or scroll down for the little video from our Instagram Reels. 

step 1: gather your materials

STEP 1: Gather your materials, here we used the Follies Canvas Set, orange paint, brown and black paper, tape, sticker LEDs and copper tape from our friends at Chibitronics.

STEP 2: Paint the surface orange (remember you can wash it afterwards) and let it dry.

STEP 3: Cut out the eyes, mouth then make your LED circuits and stick them on your creation. Here's a simple tutorial for how to make the circuits with your Chibitronics.

STEP 4: Cue the spooky music and put everything together.
