Happy Fall Basket

Hi everyone, I've got a new project on the Proxxon blog.

Taking a paper mache pumpkin, I used the Rotary Precision Tool to drill several contiguous holes in the pumpkin - long enough to get the Jigsaw blade inside the pumpkin.

The Jigsaw cut the pumpkin without issue.

Since I had raggedy edges, I used the Delta Sander to sand down the edges.

I ran a bead of adhesive around the edge of the pumpkin and placed a pleated strip of burlap.  I used paper clips to hold the burlap in place until the glue dried.

While waiting for the glue to dry, I used the Hot Wire Cutter to cut a circle from Smoothfoam that would be placed in the bottom of the pumpkin.

  Then I gathered some silk flowers and placed them inside the basket.

Thanks for stopping by.
