We are headed out to the pumpkin patch for round one of pumpkin picking this weekend. We do an early pumpkin carving and another one just a couple days before Halloween. This year I am incredibly intrigued by all the awesome carving I see going around on things other than pumpkins. I mean, if you think about it – why should pumpkins have all the fun!?! Let’s carve a pineapple instead… or a pepper, or an apple, and possibly my favorite – an orange. You can carve any fruit imaginable, just hallow it out and get slicing.
While I search for anything else I can carve, here are a few other awesome pumpkin ideas you might want to try:
We are definitely trying squash carving this year
Carve and paint with metalics for this awesome doorstop look
Star studded carved luminarias are super pretty
Use a cookie cutter for easy carving form – genius!
And this tip for using bleach to preserve pumpkins is super smart
Have a great weekend! xoxo
