Pumpkin Faces

I’m pretty sure I haven’t carved a pumpkin in about twenty years. But, now that we are in a house and have a lovely little boy, I figured it was time to give it a try. So, a couple of days before Halloween we gave it a try!

We decided to start big, getting two lovely pumpkins to turn into masterpieces.

Back in the day, we carved pumpkins with kitchen knives. Now, you can buy these cool kits that come with patterns. No more jaggy faces, I guess. The little man picked out two, and I picked out the final one.

We craved a face designed by the little man onto the first pumpkin, and used a pumpkin stencil on the larger one.

I think they turned out okay, all things considered. Most importantly, we had lots of fun!

Did you carve pumpkins for Halloween? Do you have any tips for us to help next year go a little more smoothly? I’d love to hear from you!
