I just love Halloween. It’s such a fun time of year. The weather is turning cold and bundling up with scarves and hats makes me feel cozy and warm. I love to decorate the front of our house and am always amazed at what a few bags of spider webs can do.
Usually we spend a weekend afternoon carving our pumpkins so that on Halloween night we can light them and pass out candy. Last year I made a Lightning McQueen pumpkin for Mason although I’m sure he doesn’t remember. I always like to see what other people are doing and how creative they’re getting with pumpkins. This year, Matt and realized that we didn’t carve our pumpkins. Maybe we’ll take some time tomorrow to do it but this might be the first year that we skip it altogether. Scooping out gooey pumpkin guts could be something to skip every now and again. I could be o.k. with that.
But, I couldn’t help taking a look around the web for some interesting ideas. I stumbled across a site, pumpkingutter.com that has some AMAZING pumpkin carving.
I thought in the spirit of Halloween, I would share a few of my favorites as inspiration. Just in case you’re like us and haven’t tackled the gruesome mess of stringy, yucky, pumpkin insides all over your hands, arms and body, maybe this will inspire you a bit! We’ll see if we pull out our carving tools tomorrow. If we do, I’ll be sure to share.
Happy carving everyone and have a spooky Halloween!
p.s. As huge Star Wars fans over here I had to include some of the cast of characters. It’s unbelievable what people are doing with a pumpkin as a canvas!
