This is my favorite quarter scale
project of all time -
it's certainly the most fun!
I found a life-size papier mache
pumpkin, cut it open and inserted
a lower and upper floor plus a staircase.
The back side of the house is cut as a jack o'lantern,
with the holes becoming windows for the house.
Then the fun began!
Downstairs on the left is the living
room, with Dracula lurking in the back of the room, while a spooky tree
tried to warn off visitors. On the right is the dining room, with candy
corn furniture I made from Fimo, Mme. Witch preparing candy for the trick
or treaters who are expected soon and behind it is the kitchen where a skeleton
is washing the dinner dishes.
Another skeleton is coming down the
Upstairs are several bedrooms. Each
bed is customized for its occupant.
Mme. witch's bed had a cauldron headboard.
One of the ghosts has a tombstone.
And of course Dracula has his coffin!
One of the ghosts is practicing his "boos" in front of the mirror,
while other little spooks frolic about.
While I made most of the furniture,
the figures came from craft stores as well as miniature sources.
It all sits on a landscaped tree slice covered with moss
and decorated with pumpkins and more spooks.
