BRRAAAAIIIIIINNNNNSSSS.....oops, I mean SSSEEEEEEEDDDDSSSSSS....



I've had this little shoebox full of awesome (those would be Attack of the Living Dead figures by the way) tucked away for a while now waiting for an equally awesome craft project and well, I finally got off my tuchas and did something with it!



I started with a funkin (that's a fake pumpkin for those of you not in the know) that I scored for an extra discount since it was damaged (yay pre-Halloween clearance!).



I drew where I wanted to cut (around the damage) my opening for my scene and carved away. It's times like this I had better knives...or at least a real pumpkin carving kit.



Once it was all cut up I had to do a lot of cleanup. Funkin dust EVERYWHERE!



At this point I painted it black with acrylic paint and let it dry. Since the inside of this funkin had a gloss to it, the paint didn't stick well and I got this really great crackled effect. Not what I was going for, but perfect none the less!



Once it was dry I put a layer of spanish moss in the bottom, placed my figures (with a bit of glue), added a couple battery operated tea lights for illumination and finished it off with a few fake maggots.



In the words of Mr. Craftapus;

    "Mrs. Craftapus, your pumpkin is really freaking creepy. I hope you're happy."

 ...why yes, yes I am.

xoxo,
The Craftapus

Glitter is herpes of the crafting world.

this is an awesome halloween/zombie scene!!!! I really love how the paint turned out inside of the pumpkin, it creates a nice glowing effect, i know it wasn't intentional but it is a perfect accidental effect.
