Carved pumpkins don’t last very long, so I may as well as show them off. I have no tips or tricks for you. My pumpkin carving knowledge is pretty standard. Cut a circle around the stem. (Don’t get too close to the stem or the hole will be too small.) Gut the thing. Trace your template onto the pumpkin using one of those spinny wheels that make the holes. (This is always the hardest part for me.) Carve it out. Done.
This is the first year I haven’t attempted a way-too-ambitious pumpkin and I couldn’t be happier. Not only was I done in about 30 minutes, but my back and legs weren’t aching and I had energy to do other things that day.
For your enjoyment, a few pictures of carving a lovely owl, vampire girl and pumpkin on a pumpkin (that one’s mine!).
Have you carved pumpkins yet? What did you carve this year?
Keep up with Red Leaf Style!
