Pumpkin mini-scene

My DH and I love fall and Halloween. We’ve never been the type to carve pumpkins (we tried one year and the poor thing rotted on the front porch).

This year, I decided to make a spooky scene inside of a craft pumpkin that we could display again and again.

When we shopped for pumpkins, the only craft versions we could buy were white, but nothing like an orange wash to give it a pop of color.

Definitely excited to find a place for this guy!

Looks great! How did you do the edges of the pumpkin?

It’s actually a type of lichen that I’ve adhered to the edges. I wanted to give it a little bit of a decayed feel. :blush:

Ooh the wee pumpkins are so great! It’s like pumpkin inception! :laughing:

Great job! I love that texture you have going around the outside of the carving. It creates a fun transition.

Very nice project! I love the scene but you could also turn it around and have a regular nice pumpkin to display…the wash is a nice effect!

This is awesome. It reminds me of those eggs that have scenes in them. You did a great job with the feel of it. I love how the sky is dark and creepy inside too. Sets the mood.

Thanks guys! I had a lot of fun putting it together.

What a fun idea! It turned out so great! And the fact that you can reuse it year after year is the icing on the cake.
I know what you mean about the rotten pumpkins – I think they only make it a day or two here before they’re growing mold! Ick! It just doesn’t get cold enough to keep them fresh.
