Cinderella's Pumpkin Coach

A Real Pumpkin Coach fit for a Princess!

Craft Project Directions:
Select a nice round pumpkin and carve a door on one side of it. Scoop out the insides of the pumpkin and clean out the pumpkin. Set your pumpkin aside.

Now to create the frame for the coach you will need: 4 CDs, 2 wooden dowels (several inches wider than your pumpkin), pipe cleaners, and a piece of cardboard.

Take the cardboard and cut out a circle that is somewhat larger than your pumpkin. Next take the dowels and push them through the CDs to create to axels for your coach.

Wrap pipe cleaners on either side of the wheels to keep them from slipping down the dowels. Next rest the cardboard circle on top of the wheel base.

Mark where the axels are and remove. Now punch two holes near the end of the axle of each wheel- you will thread pipe cleaners through the holes and around the axles to secure the coach and wheels together.

When you are finished with that place your pumpkin on the coach and decorate! Add a passenger inside the coach if you wish!

Enjoy Crafting!
