Here is the steam pumpkin in action and some completed project photos:
Step 1: Gather Materials
I used a Dremel to cut off and reshape metal parts.
Step 2: Carve and Decorate the Pumpkin
First I made a big cut out of the top. I wanted a wedge for the front that was about all that I had planned. I made the back part flat so I could attach a door hinge to the top and bottom parts of the pumpkin.
Next I recreated my goggles using the door knob covers and straps from the purse.
Then added an improvised aviator cap using the flap of the purse.
The ears of "Steamy Wonder" was made from the candle stick holders.
Last, I tore apart the metal lampshade using the Dremel and created the mouth.
