Halloween turntable inspiration

Not being one to plan ahead, we think it would be nice to carve the pumpkin on 2 sides and put it on a turntable

OK with household/garage items and a 5 budget any ideas for something I can do in, oooh 2 hours!!!!!!!

microwave turntable/motor





I'd love to give my imaginary friend a great big hug,

but this jacket makes it impossible.

I have a nasty feeling swimbo will be cross if I remove the turntable from the new microwave, and I had to give the old one back to argos ;-)

Just had a flash of inspiration!
My electric drill (rechargeable)
Bosch, 2 speed, but even on slowest speed its doing about 20rpm.
Too fast. Next.

Put it on a large plate, and place in a bowl/tray of water and manually spin it ?

Some kind of belt drive from the drill (pair of tights??)? Use something with larger diameter (bin lid?) and so would gear the rotational speed down??

Battery operated cheap little kids train set, the more bulky ones for the youngsters, make a complete circle with as many carriages as you can fit on. Make sure the wheels will have good traction with the extra weight. Bit of light hardboard on top and a pumpkin.

For added effect make the train look like a ghost train

Normal is getting dressed in clothes that you buy for work and driving through traffic in a
car that you are still paying for - in order to get to the job you need to pay for the clothes
and the car, and the house you leave vacant all day so you can afford to live in it.

Float it in a bowl and cut a fan/propellor to go on the top. The heat from the candle will cause it to turn.
Thankyou, I'll take my fee in cakes...
