Witch’s Kitchen #TrickYourPumpkin

This is a slight departure from my usual needle felting projects, but with Halloween right around the corner, I figured it was apropos! Michael’s is having a #TrickYourPumpkin contest, so this pumpkin diorama with a witch’s kitchen inside is going to be my entry!

I took a craft pumpkin and carved a large opening in the front. I painted the inside a deep purple and distressed the outside of the pumpkin with black paint. It has a little raven’s nest perched on top, and the whole pumpkin is resting on top of a cake stand draped in black cheesecloth.

Inside the witch’s kitchen, there’s a little table and a hutch featuring polymer clay miniatures I made: potion bottles, a crystal ball, spell books, candles, face jars, a bat, a pumpkin and more!

I hope you enjoy this little Halloween scene!

Happy Fall!

As I’ve been adding fall and Halloween-themed critters to my Etsy shop, I had the idea to create a little seasonal scene to photograph them in, and I couldn’t be more delighted with the results! I used polymer clay and a craft gourd to build a little house surrounded by a picket fence. The polymer clay spooky tree has little ghosts hanging from it, and the front stoop on the house is decorated with mini bales of hay, a pumpkin and a tiny broom! Now, onto a winter scene!

Peter the Pumpkin Patch Mouse

So, it’s only July and it’s about a billion degrees outside here in Orlando, but I’m already thinking about my favorite season – fall! This is Peter, who happened upon a pumpkin patch… and I think you can figure out the rest. He’s listed on Etsy and is ready to ship!
