Enchanting Pumpkin Gourd Lit Jack O Lantern Hand Carved
Are you looking for something totally unique, fresh and special for Halloween or autumn decorating? If so, this interesting hand crafted, one of a kind gourd we designed will not only capture attention on a deep window sill but can be placed on top of a mantle or can even grace a chair on the porch in style lending magic and intrigue!
The hand carved face on this Pennsylvania grown gourd is purely Harry’s interpretation that portrays a fun and whimsical folk art appearance which can be enjoyed by all….. including the little ones!
Earth tone colors in this gourd are a combination of deep tan’s, ochre and nutmeg’s with touches of evasive midnight blacks. A hole was added on the top to accommodate a battery operated, flickering, votive candle that has a wax appearance combined with whispers of dark speckled texture as shown in images 14 & 15. Velcro buttons were used to attach both the votive and the gourd hat. The votive can be gently inserted ***at the half way point only*** because if you push down too far the votive may fall through the hole without having anyway of retrieving it. The hat can be positioned to your liking and I chose to place it tilted off to one side and by doing so this idea creates a hint of whimsy to the overall look.
The gourd hat has a long stem protruding from the top that adds plenty of character to this unique pumpkin. There is an “on and off” switch on the votive that is accessible and can be turned on at will as shown in image 16. The warm, soft glow can be seen during the evening hours if the gourd is placed in a dark setting obtaining wonderous results! He is a happy little guy that will make your holidays bright by evoking whispers of Halloween magic casting soft light inside! Enjoy!
Please Note: Each gourd has its own personality so to speak as they will vary a little in size, color and also the shape of the hat. However you will receive something very close to what is pictured.
