The Spooky World of Halloween Pumpkin Dioramas (Second Edition)

pumpkin-diorama-feature

Last year, I did a post on Halloween pumpkin dioramas that has caused as much of a sensation on my blog and continues to do so. So I decided to do another post despite having a hard time finding unique pumpkin dioramas like these posted above. And I used all of them in last year’s post. When I discussed the idea of pumpkin dioramas with my mother, she seemed to imagine the pumpkin being part of the display. So she was surprised when she saw the dioramas in the pumpkin whether they come from a pumpkin patch or a craft store. And many of them do have a lot of scary Halloween stuff. But once in a while you might find pumpkin dioramas like these which revolve around polar regions, fairy gardens, and space.  Some pumpkin dioramas revolve around Thanksgiving but we’re getting ahead of ourselves. So for your reading pleasure, I give you another treasure trove of these Halloween pumpkin creations.

  1. How about a some campfire music with old friends?
Sure they may not want to get out of their graves at the moment. But the music can go straight to their bones or wake the dead.

2. Things have been a little dead lately in the big house.

And here they are gambling behind bars. Seem to have no bones about it.

3. Seems like this graveyard has seen better days.

Guess somebody hasn't tended this cemetery in years. As I can tell by the weeds.

4. Hope you don’t have to stay in this haunted house.

The house lights up from the inside if you get my drift. Seems like a skeleton answers the door.

5. Just because the house is small doesn’t mean it’s not haunted.

Well, this house is a paper cut out. Yet, I do love how they used moss and trees for the scary decor.

6. Sometimes these old houses could take their secrets to the grave.

Yes, I know it's not painted black for a night scene on the inside. Yet, it nevertheless seems all the more eerie.

7. Don’t mind these skeletons hanging out on the graveyard shift.

"So I said to her, 'Look, we're not getting any younger. At least I you still have your skin while I'm practically decomposing.'"

“So I said to her, ‘Look, we’re not getting any younger. At least I you still have your skin while I’m practically decomposing.'”

8. Hope your pumpkin graveyard includes a scary tree.

And I don't mean one of those Ents from Lord of the Rings. Unless you want to do a Lord of the Rings pumpkin diorama, which this is not.

9. Seems like we have a light from the ground here.

It's also part miniature garden as well with a carved top. Still, like the light.

10. Man, those skeletons sure know how to party.

But I often hear that they're not a lively bunch. Though they really seem to have a dead good time.

11. When you see a large skull at night, you’ll be in for a fright.

Now this one is quite menacing. Really like how the one skeleton rises out of the ground and the white trees. That kid will surely need therapy.

12. Guess you can find lots of bats about this one.

This one seems to take a view from the sky with paper bats and branches inside. Amazing.

13. Open the door to this pumpkin and you’ll find a haunted house inside.

You'll also find some pumpkins stacked like a snowman as well as bats on a lite tree. But that's beside the point.

14. Sometimes people would want their pumpkins to contain the sights of nature.

However, they couldn't include a scene of deer mating, fighting, getting shot but hunters, or being hit by cars as would you normally see during the fall. So they decided to go with a deer family scene instead.

15. This little pumpkin contains a real graveyard scene.

Well, it doesn't use much. But you might not want to know who's buried here. Or who's decomposing.

16. Enter this graveyard if you dare.

Love how they painted the clouds in this one. Also like the large gate. Really eerie.

17. This barbecue is bound to be a graveyard smash.

"How about we cook ribs on the grill tonight?" "Whose yours or mine? Cause I don't have any meat on 'em."

18. Here we come to Cinderella being let out from her pumpkin coach.

Well, that's one way to put a pumpkin to good use. Not scary for Halloween, creative enough.

19. May your dreams come true with this Disney pumpkin diorama.

Once again, this also features Cinderella and her castle. Why was I not surprised?

20. Even foxes should know not to be alone in a graveyard at night.

Well, I think the fox touch is a bit clever since wildlife frequent cemeteries all the time. Hope it can get through the night.

21. How about a road of black trees into the sunset?

I guess the trees might be made from paper. But I love how they create an arch over the road so close together.

22. This skeleton is by himself with his bones.

Yes. he's on a bench in his bones on a night like this. Hope he didn't die waiting for anyone or anything.

23. This haunted house has really gone to the ghosts.

Well, you have bats around here, too but they seem more part of the scenery. But they're the only living creature you'll find here.

24. Fans of the Wizard of Oz would enjoy this pumpkin diorama of Emerald City.

Of course, I think the flying monkey scenes would've been more appropriate. Considering this is Halloween we're talking about.

25. Using cotton is great for cobwebs and fog.

Well, this seems like a messy craft project made by a school child. Then again, it's kind of supposed to be.

26. For a fighting mummy scene, an Egyptian scene is necessary.

And it seems these mummies are going at it with each other. Must be in a museum.

27. Seems like these skeletons are having a graveyard smash in the Old West.

Well, it's kind of hard to make out what's going on here. But I'm sure the figures are kind of undead.

28. Sometimes a graveyard might need to blend with its surroundings.

After all, having it a plain orange pumpkin doesn't make it seem any more dead. Also, got to make room for those trees.

29. This skeleton really knows how to make an entrance.

Yes, they really seem to dig a stylish red motorcycle. Then again, it's not like the moped could kill them since they're dead already.

30. Ahoy, dead pirates on the high seas.

Seems like they came across some treasure, too. Too bad they may not be able to enjoy it.

31. It always seems a little dead at 1313.

Doesn't seem like a lively place. Unless you're a bat. Like the house and trees.

32. Need room for broom parking?

Well, outside broom parking anyway. Inside broom parking space is a closet. Like the spiderweb.

33. This place seems to have become a real ghost town.

Think of it as an Old West town but with skeletons. Why Tim Burton doesn't make a western movie like this I have no idea.

34. It’s always eerie to see bats flying at the full moon.

Well, bats are kind of creepy if you ask me. Yet, wonder if there's a pumpkin diorama with a Batman sign.

35. Seems like this pumpkin is under construction.

This one uses Playmobil figures. Must've been made for a kid so it would be less scary.

36. Behold the raven overlooking the unburied graves.

Odd, to have the skeletons all black like they're decomposing. Nice to have a mausoleum, which you don't see in a lot of grave yard scenes.

37. Now this makes a great cemetery entrance.

I'm sure most cemeteries don't have skeleton entry archways. So enter if you dare.

38. These pumpkins always make nice abodes for fall fairies.

Both of them even have bats for added Halloween emphasis. Also like the gnomes.

39. You’ll never know what you’ll find on Halloween night.

These seem to have a more vintage look to them. Two have trick or treaters. One has a witch.

40. May you step up to know your fortune.

Seems like that's an Evil Queen from Snow White in a yellow dress for this purpose. Love the border though.

41. Seems like we have plants spilling out this pumpkin.

Well, I said some of these are mini gardens. Not sure if it will be good after October though.

42. Not sure if I could hear the future from this fortune teller.

Like the spider web outfit on the skeleton. Very fitting for a haunted fortune teller.

43. Something must’ve awoken the dead during the night.

Then again, they could be early risers. Of course, it's probably too late for me to say that.

44. Those who enjoy Harry Potter will enjoy these pumpkin dioramas.

One depicts Buckbeak at Hagrid's Hut from the Prisoner of Azkaban. The other has Harry on his broom during a Quidditch match.

45. There’s nothing more adorable than a couple of raccoons.

Yes, these are cute inside your pumpkin. But they can be a terror in your trash bin.

46. Better rest in peace with this spooky town.

Yes, I know you see a lot of graveyard pumpkin dioramas. But it's Halloween for God's sake. So graveyard scenes are a thing.

47. Well, hope these ghosts can haunt to it.

This doesn't seem that hard to do. And will surely not scare people. Like the ghosts.

48. Nothing makes a better pumpkin diorama like a tiger and a squirrel.

And the squirrel doesn't seem to scale which makes it ideal prey for the tiger. Because, that's nature.

49. Perhaps you may say he’s dead but not completely buried.

Now that looks pretty creepy, especially with the foliage. Love the crow on top. Or is that a raven?

50. This spidery pumpkin has no bones about it.

Well, it has plenty of bones about it inside. But that's just an expression. Still, has spiders for extra creepiness.
