Gather your supplies. I cheated, hah, I bought a kit at the Country Living Fair. It had all of this included but not the pumpkin. You could use a real one.......I thought that would be messy. They also suggested one of the fake rubbery ones. I could see me loosing some fingers trying to cut it out. In the kit there was some moss (I think it is called something else), a spray of fall, a wooden chair, a bat and a mouse and I added the witch's hat. I took the spray apart and put it in different places instead of all together.
I chose this pumpkin because I could get the decorations inside by opening the slats more. I liked that it looked wooden. I am going to add a battery light as well.
