This is going to be short and sweet but I had to share the Cinderella pumpkin carriage I made for my daughter because it’s just too cute!
We went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch last week and my daughter was insistent upon getting a Cinderella pumpkin! We literally hiked way out to the middle of the pumpkin field until she found the perfect pumpkin. After she found her “perfect Cinderella pumpkin” she told everyone that she was going to go home and turn it into a Cinderella pumpkin carriage… yes, everyone.
While she was taking a nap I painted her pumpkin with this pretty teal sample color I have from Valspar. It’s called Ocean Whisper.
Then I searched my office for what could be the carriage door and wheels. I found a small scrapbooking frame, that I had bought at Michael’s, years ago, some brads to hold the “door” on, and some tea lights, to make wheels.
I poked the brads through the pumpkin to hold the “door” on and then I broke a toothpick in 1/2 and used each half to hold the “wheels” in place.
Then I searched through my daughter’s princess stuff to find Cinderella, and a few accessories, and then I put it all together.
I think the Cinderella pumpkin carriage turned out adorable, and the best part is that my daughter LOVES it!!! It’s exactly what she was picturing in her mind, I’m just glad I was able to put it all together for her. 🙂
