Meet Thisbe! This whimsical pumpkin is made with a real dried gourd! It's surprising to know that this happy pumpkin began as a seedling on a farm! I use dried gourds that come from farms in the United States. I cut the tops off, clean out the middle and carve the faces just as you would a fresh jack-o-lantern. Painted and waxing shows off the gorgeous shell of the gourd which feels wonderfully smooth to the touch. I like to dress my pumpkins in style, so I channel my inner Madd Hatter and create beautiful autumn hats. The hats have a fall whimsey feeling of scarecrows, ghosts, and witches, with lots of fall texture and foliage. This makes each pumpkin gourd truly unique, with its own personality. I leave the inside unpainted because I think it's important to not forget the true nature of this pumpkin as a real vegetable!
Light them up! There's nothing better for your fall tabletop decor than to have lighted pumpkins around your home! Because I really don't enjoy walking around my house turning on all the lights of my fall pumpkin decorations and then having to turn them off at bed, this pumpkin comes with its own set of timer string lights. I arrange the string lights loosely inside the pumpkin, then turn on the timer setting around dusk, then they stay on for about six hours, and turn off on their own! It's so wonderful when the pumpkins just light up as the sun is setting! You don't have to touch it again until the batteries run out and need to be replaced.
14 inches tall
8 inches in diameter
String Lights are included, but the AAA batteries are not included.
