No-carve pumpkin: Poisoned apple

The evil Queen's apple has got nothing on this no-carve pumpkin.

1 pumpkin
Red spray paint
Green construction paper
Glue gun

1. Spray-paint the pumpkin red. Let dry, about 1 hour.

2. Cut a large leaf shape from green construction paper. Fold leaf in half lengthwise to form a crease, and then unfold. Affix leaf to the top of the pumpkin’s stem using hot glue.
