Ichabod Crane, the unlikely hero of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, would certainly feel braver on his moonless walks through the forest if he wore one of these glowing paper pumpkin hats. And think how magical your Autumn will be with them arranged as a centerpiece on your harvest table. You’ll learn to create gourd shapes from imported gradated crepe, then light them from within with an LED “candle.” Stretch, pull, and “wodge” the moldable paper into shapes you desire, then decorate with Dresden trim, spun-cotton mushrooms, and whatever strikes your fancy. John has taught basic party hat classes, but this one has always been a favorite. Take away three or four hats and gourds for your autumn décor.
