Over the summer, Jaclyn and Melissa spied the watermelon keg project right here on ManMade, and immediately made one for themselves. And when fall rolled around, they figured out a way to adapt it to this seasons’, um, giant, round, open on the inside thing: the pumpkin. Melissa says, “This scene-stealing DIY fall party project of ours is the perfect example of why I love my job. There are few people who get to go to work and craft a DIY pumpkin keg, but I do! And that makes me smile. Luckily, we’re not about keeping such secrets to ourselves here at Celebrations.com, so we’re sharing our pumpkin keg how-to with you in the video above and with the directions below.”
Fantastic. While I don’t recommend using it for beer, since it will certainly become room temperature much faster, and likely flat from sitting around, this thing would be awesome for punch, cider, or a cocktail mixed en masse. I’m doing it.
