I decided to create another Pumpkin Diorama this year for the United Way auction at work. I created one last year that can be found here.
This year I’m using the same size pumpkin but it is white instead. I had seen a white pumpkin online that had been antiqued with glaze and I liked the look. The concept was going to be a haunted house but I wasn’t sure if I wanted to do an inside scene of a haunted house or make the pumpkin the house instead. I chose to do both.
The house itself I was going to make out of wood but I really didn’t want to. It was going to be a lot of small cuts, etc. I decided to use fun foam instead. The house form is 1/4 foam, then the smaller stuff is the thin foam. Much more easy to cut!
Here are the pictures up until now. I’m at the stage now where I am using expanding foam inside the pumpkin to build up the area the house will sit on. I will paint the brick chimney while I wait for the foam to dry.
