As creative as I may be, this is something I have always needed a little help with. Realizing that it is a good idea to know what I want to create before selecting our pumpkins was a good thing! There are so many sizes and shapes to choose from and what you want the final look to be will be greatly influenced by what pumpkin you select. Also – knowing the steps, having the right tools and – creating a template that can easily be traced with a marker will make the pumpkin carving a real seasonal event for you. I have previously posted step by step guide to the perfect pumpkin – you can check it out on this page:
And selecting the perfect design is not always easy – I have done some research for you and picked the 10 designs I really liked – None of them look too difficult to create - the simplest way is the copy the design on a piece of paper first and then use a marker to draw it on your pumpkin. Remember – it doesn’t have to be perfect – carved pumpkins are supposed to be funny!
Here are few on my favorites:
This one should be no problem for anyone to copy and make – I love the traditional pumpkins and if you don – go and get it done!
Kids love this one – and it is very easy to make. Remember to draw it on a large piece of paper and then copy it with marker on your pumpkin. Or – if you are the creative type, draw it on your pumpkin directly!
You just gotta love this one! And I think your Halloween visitors would as well!
This one may look a little more difficult, but with the right tools and a little patience I think it would be relatively easy to make. If you try it, please send me a picture!
Definitely one of my favorite and at the top of my list for this year – adding a little cuteness to the scary day!
Definitely a unique one and only a little bit scary!
Looks like you need a good sharp knife to make this pumpkin – and of course – some patience. But this really is a great design that will get lots of attention!
Just having a sharp knife, patience and being careful with the thinner lines is all that this one will need!
Love this one – it’s definitely on my “try it” list for this year!
This one should not be difficult to make at all – have lots of fun this Halloween!
Hope you have a wonderful Halloween and please send me your comments and suggestions anytime! If possible, I would love to get photos of your creations – your input is always welcomed and very much appreciated!
