Glowing Pumpkin

My four-year-old daughter and I made a glowing pumpkin out of a plastic gutter downspout a neighbor was throwing away. I cut the downspout to length, then drilled holes in each end and tied them together with a bread tie. We spray painted it with Rustoleum Orange High Gloss, ran Christmas lights through it, and topped it with a pine cone for the stem.
