My little pumpkins

Making miniature carved pumpkins is always fun for me. So many possibilities and styles I can play with. This is the first time I made pumpkin carriages. When I plan to make a carved pumpkin I build it on an alufoil ball. After baking I mine the alufoil out and it's a hard work, believe me, but I get a nice hollow pumpkin that way. The cogwheels are my own works, too. I made them from paper using various patterns.
I took some pictures with sunflower seeds just to show the measures. It would have been better placing pumkin seeds around my little pumpkins but unfortunately I hadn't got any at home at the time.
