Meet Matilda! A 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. I carve her face and some spooky bats by hand. Translucent paints and waxing show off the gorgeous shell of the gourd which feels wonderfully smooth to the touch.
I like to dress my whimsical pumpkins in style, so I channel my inner Madd Hatter and create beautiful autumn witch hats. The hats have a wonderful fall feeling with lots of texture and foliage. The brim and point of the hat have wires built-in, so you can have fun adjusting the wave of the brim and the crinkle of the pointed witch's hat. 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 tealight candle with a timer! You turn on the timer setting around dusk, then it stays on for about six hours, and turns off on its 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 battery runs out and needs to be replaced.
