RCI & Pumpkins & Pinterest

First let me start out by saying RCI Insuranace wishes a HAPPY HALLOWEEN everyone! For those of you who are fans of our Facebook page, we had a poll to see which project you wanted to see our office do for Halloween.

After many votes, and a tie breaker from those people in the office who are not on Facebook, the verdict was pumpkins. And let me tell you, was this a fun project or what! We had “pinned” all three of these ideas on our RCI Pinterest page (if you’re not following us, you should check us out!).

What you will need:

  • Pumpkins (any size)
  • Safety Matches (you’ll thank me later)
  • Box of Crayons (36 crayons per pumpkin)
  • Large piece of cardboard

We began with our “naked” pumpkins at 12:00, using random cardboard we found around the office (a Dr. Pepper box and a pizza box) we covered our conference room table.


Using crayons and lighters from the dollar store, we began peeling the wrappers off the crayons and melting them onto the pumpkins.

Not long after starting the project and a few burnt fingers, we decided to try something different. Gracious Tabi ran down to the Ace Hardware and bought these bad boys.

Safety Matches! Given the office smelled like it was burning down but our fingers were safe and we had much better results.

Look at those flames! No one was harmed in the making of these pumpkins.
