You can magically transform a pumpkin into your own Cinderella-inspired carriage faster than you can say, "Bibbidi bobbidi boo!"

- White funkin
- X-acto knife
- Metallic gold craft paint
- Blue craft paint
- Cardboard coasters (set of 4)
- Small dowels
- Gold tinsel pipe cleaners
- Metallic gold paper
To make the carriage: Use an x-acto knife to cut out an arched window from the funkin.
Decorate the carriage as desired with paints. Ours takes reference from the carriage in the Disney movie with a monogram "C," a lamp post, and gilded leaves at the bottom of the carriage.
To make the wheels: Cut two of the coasters to measure smaller than the other two (the smaller ones will be the front wheels). Trace coasters (or cardboard circles, if using) onto metallic gold paper and cut out. Paste gold paper onto coasters with glue.
Shape gold pipe cleaners into spirals and glue to wheels.
Pierce holes into coasters with x-acto knife to insert dowels.
Place the two sets of wheels on either side of the carriage. (If desired, you can also secure wheels to pumpkin by tying ribbon to the dowels and hot gluing to the bottom or side of the pumpkin.)
