I've been wanting to try my hand at creating one of those fantastic altered doll houses, but it just feels like such an overwhelming project to dig into! So I decided to work a bit smaller, and made a little pumpkin stand for Halloween.

I did my fair share of yard saleing this summer, looking for treasures to craft with. My pumpkin stand started out as this discarded, hideous pile of pink:


I think it's much happier now!


It has gotten a bit overgrown, but that's what happens when pumpkins are left to their own devices.


I have had that stained glass embellishment for years, and finally found a place to use it. It fit in there perfectly!


I hope you like my pumpkin stand! It was so fun to make -- though I'm still deciding if I want to tackle a bigger house... maybe there needs to be a pumpkin farm some day. Grin

How clever of you!  I never would have thought to use that pink thing to make such an awesome Halloween project (or even to buy it in the first place). Very cool!
