Pumpkin Carving

So, for the past few years, I’ve done some intricate pumpkin carvings around this time. I look forward to Fall so that I can go pick out the perfect pumpkin to do this to. I take a photo, and with a few easy steps, have a stencil for carving. I can’t remember where I first saw it, but if you google it you will find lots on it. There is a good tutorial here.

I will post the results of the last couple of years so you can see what I’m talking about. Sadly, this years creation has already gotten ruined by some pesky squirrels. But, gladly, I already took photos of it! I will show what it looks like with my flash on and then without.

This is from two years ago. It’s my youngest son Jayce.


This is the one I did last year. It is my other son Cole.


And then this year’s pumpkin is my husband and me.



It is a little tricky and somewhat time-consuming. But worth it in the end. It may not feel like you are doing it right. To test- put a candle or light in it and turn off the lights. That gives you a good idea if you are on the right track. Hope you guys try it and have fun with it!
