You need that

  • A large pumpkin
  • Knife
  • Ice cream scoop
  • Miniature cemetery
  • Terrain Structure Paste and Weathering Powder
  • Model Figures: Zombies, Vampires, Gravestones
  • Craft glue
  • Model trees: autumnal trees, bare tree
  • Mini LED fairy lights
  • Decorative Moss

1. Hollow out the pumpkin
Cut an arc into the side of the pumpkin and hollow it out. I use a large knife for cutting and a metal ice cream scoop for hollowing out. This is the best way to scrape out the pumpkin.
2. Beautify the cemetery
You can beautify the Cemetery with Terrain Structure Paste and Weathering Powder. I also treated my additional gravestones with Weathering Powder. This step is optional. :)
3. Glue on model figures
Now glue the model figures on the Cemetery with craft glue. Allow the glue to dry.
4. Decorate the pumpkin

Place the Cemetery inside the pumpkin and position a few trees around it. Wrap the fairy lights around the cemetery and the trees. Cover the wires with some Decorative Moss, but make sure that the lights either lie on top of it or can shine through.
