I would like you to meet Briar! A very happy, and very unique pumpkin that is handmade with a real dried gourd! It's surprising to know that this folk art pumpkin began as a seedling on a farm, grown in the United States.
To make this fall pumpkin decoration I cut the tops off of dried gourds, clean out the middle, and carve the faces just as you would a fresh jack-o-lantern. 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 hats full of gorgeous autumn colors and textures. The brim of the hats have wire built-in, so you can have fun adjusting the wave and crinkle just so. Each pumpkin gourd is 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! Turn on the timer setting around dusk. 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.
11 inches tall
9 inches wide at the brim of her hat
6 inches wide across her face
Includes a tealight candle with a timer!
