Workshop Pumpkin





Introduction: Workshop Pumpkin

Pumpkin Challenge

First Prize in the
Pumpkin Challenge

This is the easiest pumpkin you will ever carve. Just find a good size pumpkin and raid your kids toy box.

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

This is what I used for this project.

Medium - large book

Craft sticks

Craft glue

wood stain

Collection of toys. I used playmobil accessories.

Step 2: Make the Floor

For the floor I laid out enough craft sticks to make a 12in x 12in square and glued pieces across the backs to lock them all together. After it dried a little I flipped it over and stained it. Let it sit over night.

Step 3: Carve the Pumpkin and Finish

For carving the pumpkin I cut a large rectangle in the front of the pumpkin, a door and a window. I cut the door and window based on the size of my accessories.

Cleaned out the pumpkin.

I used a piece of paper in the bottom of the pumpkin to make a template for the floor. I just keep cutting it until it fit.

I then transfered the template to the floor and cut out with a heavy duty cutters.

Then add your floor and accessories.

very very clever.

Fun! Kind of reminds me of James and the Giant Peach, only more pumpkin-y.

That is so cute! What a great idea

This is so cool! I never even thought about using the pumpkin as a shadow box. The possibilities....

This is so cool.
