I made this a while back but never took pictures of it. Since I took a picture today I figured why not share it?
I had made some day of the dead clothespin dolls as wedding party favors, and had some of them set aside for myself. I decided to make a little pumpkin home to showcase them in.

I took a carvable pumpkin and cut a lid into the top, just like a regular jackolantern, so that I could work inside it. I cut a circular hole in the bottom and put a color changing light in the bottom, so that the switch and battery cover are on the bottom of the outside of the pumpkin. Then I cut a window in the front, with the intention of making it fancier...but I realized that it was more of a pain to cut the pumpkin with an exacto knife than I had anticipated, so I settled for a plain rectangular window.
I used hot glue to cover the insides of the pumpkin walls with fake autumn flowers and leaves, and to set the clothespin people to the floor of the pumpkin.

Here is a pic of the pumpkin unlit and using a flash...

And here's a close up of the inside with the light....

Thanks for looking...happy Halloween! Grin

What a new Idea! So cute.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.
