This year my work had a pumpkin carving contest. I was inspired by the funkin carousel found here but wanted to put my own spin on it.
I started by carving the top:
but it looked a little lonely, so I painted the top and bottom and accented with glitter.
Tada! My very own dolphin merry-go-round. I made a lazy susan using a wood circle from the craft store, a bearing from Home Depot, and a cork circle from Ikea. (a little ghetto, but it got the job done).
