I started with a black pumpkin along with some Halloween miniatures
On the pumpkin, I drew a scary face then I cut out the shapes with an Exacto knife
The inside of the pumpkin got painted orange so it would glow when lit up.
The wooden haunted house was painted black - I had to cut off the top so it would fit inside
Next I glued the haunted house and the skeleton dog inside (she loves her dogs so I had to include one). Boo Dog is standing guard just in case you're brave enough to come up to the house. 😉
hmmm, now I need something for the floor of the pumpkin. I wanted moss but all I had was green - not the look I was going for! I didn't want to go buy black spray paint either. So I flipped it upside down...perfect! Brown and spooky looking. That got glued down along with some flat stones to make a path.
Then I used two old fence pickets to make a platform. I glued the pumpkin down on the back part, adding a gate with an "Enter At Your Own Risk" sign in front of the pumpkin
Two candy corn bottle brush trees and a ghost were next
then a street sign with mossy accents
Last up, a spider on top of the pumpkin with a bit of spiderweb and it's all done!
BOO!!I think it turned out really cute but with the spookiness she likes. I can't wait to give it to her. She'll get it early so she can enjoy it for Halloween.
Please be sure to pin for later!
