About this Product

Get ready for battle! Choose your side with this hand-sculpted and hand-carved checkerboard set. Assemble your army of strong, solid pumpkins, or side with the rosy apples flying their flags of golden leaves, and play over a field of carved wood and moss. Woodsy, whimsical, a little cottagecore, this is a perfect housewarming gift or autumn accent piece for your coffee table.

The set includes twelve (12) pumpkin and twelve (12) apple miniature game pieces, each sculpted and hand-painted to resemble realistic, heirloom varieties found in nature. Each game piece is made from air dry stone clay and triple-varnished for protection. The hand-carved checkerboard is hewn from solid pine, stained with a rich honey walnut hue, and inlaid with real preserved moss. Four (4) hand cut copper crowns are also included. The checker board is about 11.5 inches square and the game pieces are a little over 1 cubic inch, excluding the wired stems and leaves.

The Paper Cauldron

Meet the Maker

Hi! I'm Jaycee.

I've moved my way through the crowded cities of Asia and Southern California, and finally found my forever home in quiet, small town, Georgia. I love gardening, decorating for parties (but hate attending), trying different foods, and adventuring in new places. I think jumping spiders are cute but frogs make me squeamish.  I can be pretty awkward but I totally revel in my weirdness. Each item I make is crafted with happiness, a bit of geekiness, and a touch of humor (also, maybe some glitter. Okay, a lot of glitter and sparkles). I hope each gift sent from my shop makes its recipient smile.


The Paper Cauldron is currently my side gig (hoping to change that soon!) so please be patient with turnaround times. I’d love to hear your feedback, comments, or just stop by my social media and say “hi”. 

note: The cutie pie in the pic is my logo inspiration and The Paper Cauldron's mascot. He passed away in 2019 but will forever be missed.

Also, that's me, being goofy on a hike in Arizona in the middle of winter. 5/5 totally recommend.
