So what does an undead pumpkin chest look like?
In this case it looks something like this.
The chest and collar bones were made from recycled cardboard and rolled up newspaper tubes built onto a 1 ½ inch piece of PVC.
The method to display this piece is deceptively simple.
The PVC with the chest is slid over a small fence stake that has been sunk into the ground.
The pumpkin head simply sits on top allowing it to be posed however you like and the arms and hands (claws) will be “hinged” together, again allowing the creature to be displayed in a variety of ways.
Another great thing about using a fence stake is that it can be pushed into the ground on an angle making the undead pumpkin seem to lunge forward.
