Pumpkin Wands

In honor of Halloween, I have designed a pumpkin wand with a matching pumpkin stand. I'm so pleased to say that this wand and stand are 100% original design from me. Usually I look at pictures and gather ideas and inspiration, but not on this one.
The wand sits in the stand perfectly. The stand is tiny and has a pumpkin patch kind of feel to it. Lots of curly vines, tiny pumpkins, and a pumpkin leaf.
I made a lot of these wands since I like them so much, so I will be selling them in different ways. One with the stand, 4 with boxes as you see in the picture below, and 4 just wands. Hopefully the price range will fit many people :).
The wand box features a brown bottom with orange ribbon interior. The top is orange with brown shading and a hand drawn pumpkin. I wanted the drawing to look like one of those old line art style drawings, I think I got close :).
The wand itself is made to look like the shaft is carved wood with some shading to get it nice and spooky looking. Then the hilt is greens and oranges with the pumpkin topper.
These will all be in my Etsy shop very soon. And I have so many more wand ideas now, this style opens up so much!
