Pumpkin Carriage

At work we had pumpkin decorating and we were provided with pumpkins, some carving tools, acrylic paints and some stick on eyes and bling to customize them.

I decide to forego carving it up, not just due to the mess but worried it might attract bugs and paint seems to have a way of finding a way to stain my clothes no matter how careful I try to be with it.

I ended up using two pens an four caps off green tea bottles that I used a letter opener to make holes with, the back of a legal pad for the cardboard base, a Sharpie to draw the doors and windows, two sticker bling (there was more around the door but kept falling off) and a binder clip for the reins

While my little guy looks more like a 3rd graders craft project, I was limited by what tools and I had at my desk and by time as it has been so busy I could only spare a few minutes.   I think it turned out ok and it sort of looks like an tiny canned ham campter trailer pumpkin home.
