Welcome back, friends! It’s officially October! Halloween will be here before we know it!
Oh, how was my break you ask? Unfortunately I can’t say I got a lot done. But it was a nice little break nonetheless. Luckily, my son just transferred to an all day kindergarten, so I will have more time to craft moving forward. 🙂
Today I’m going to introduce my Halloween pumpkin stall.
I carved out a store bought fake pumpkin decoration made out of Styrofoam to make this stall. (I got this one from Target’s dollar section a couple of years ago.)
I sanded the inside a little just to make it easier for me to paint.
I also made a table and shelves with foam board and balsa wood.
I filled the shelves with mostly things from 2015 Halloween crafts.
I kind of like this miniature Halloween tree I made. 😀
I installed a lighting inside of this stall, so you can see the inside better.
I bunched up the lights like this…
To install the lights, I needed to remove the stem end. Then I made a slit on top to squeeze the lights in though.
Then I glued on the remaining wire along the wall.
I glued back the pumpkin together with a glue gun.
With some air drying clay, I covered up the lighting wire sticking out on top and made it into the stem shape.
Once t he clay was dry, I painted the stem black.
Oh yeah, I added a door for my Sylvanians to use to get inside.
I just used a normal hinges and screws. It’s not reinforced, so this is just more for the show.
