I love looking at intricately carved pumpkins. I don’t really have the patience desire to replicate them, but I do like carving something different. Some years I feel inspired, sometimes I don’t. Usually I just have to carve whatever the kids want! Here is a look back over the past few years. What fun jack ‘o lantern have you created?
This year I was tasked with creating Lord Voldemort. I did the best I could! Not sure what is up with his mouth.
On the left is my silly pumpkin. On the right is what my daughter requested…a princess! I drew the shapes and my husband carved it, refined it, and put jewels in the crown.
Last year I had the requests of Boo and Darth Vader. Thank god for templates!
In 2008 I carved this Dr. Horrible silhouette out of a white pumpkin. This year my son dressed up as Dr. Horrible. That thing has staying power!
Harry Pumpkin – aka the gourd who lived.
And a few oldies but goodies… Mike Wazowski!
…and finally, my husband’s Picasso inspired creation.
