Pumpkin Carving

I love pumpkin carving it’s one of my favourite things to do with Miss L.Β  I discovered a couple of years back that I have bit of a talent for it (as long as I have a template! You can buy them in supermarkets or download them) and this year I have actually taken a couple of orders for pumpkins.

Martha Stewart (of course!) is my main inspiration for the pumpkins, this year I’m going to do the lace pumpkins that are on her site.

Here are a couple that I did last year, I’m repeating them this year for my Mum and her neighbour as they wanted them again

But I’ll post this year’s nearer Halloween as I need to make sometime to do it ,and to get my hands into training for all that scraping out! πŸ™‚

  1. I can’t wait to see your pumpkin creations. I just don’t have the patience to do all the details. I like the pumpkins Martha did awhile ago where she used a drill and made polka dot holes around her pumpkin. When it was lit, it looked wonderful. I can do simple dots =).

  2. I’m not sure I can do those lacework ones, they would take more patience than I have, but i’ll give it a shot πŸ™‚

    Ooo polka dots, now they would look very cool with the light in them – I might do that for a couple. Lily always insists we have at least 5 pumpkins!

  3. Hi Liz,
    I found something funny on another blog. Eddie Ross, who works with Martha Stewart has a post about decorating pumpkins with a drill. Take a look at it here http://www.eddieross.com/ Its like Eddie is reading our minds. Anyway, His pumpkins look good. Just a little FYI. Have a great pumpkin carving day! =)

  4. Brilliant! Thanks Rochelle for sending me that, it might save my hands from falling off. I now have 8 pumpkins to carve this year, that method will be much quicker and easier on the hands. ((HUGS)) πŸ™‚

  5. Wow! These are amazing Liz!
    I can just about get a face into a pumpkin, but not sure I’d have the patience for something as clever as this! – Love the vampire one, looks fantastic lit up, well done you!
