On Sundays Mike, Sam, Derek and I have a little routine going. They come over, we have dinner, then we watch the Walking Dead. Yesterday… we adding carving pumpkins to that list! So Miked picked us up and off Jewel we went to start selecting our pumpkins!
So many pumpkins, how is one suppose to chose?!
At one point they all just started looking identical
The chosen ‘kins!
Got our table prepped
And Mike cut out the tops, what a nice guy
Then you must make another critical decision of what you want to carve into your $4.99 pumpkin with your $5.00 tools that are cheaply made and Mike breaks every year…. but thats not here nor there! 😉 I didnt want to do one from the book because lets be honest… everyone has that book and everyones doing those designs, so we all printed an image from the internet. I went with this cutsey Day of The Dead Skull. I just loved it!!
Running low on black ink! eeeeek!
Once the pumkin is all cleaned out, you want to use the scraping tool and scrap down the inside of the side of pumkin you will be carving. This thins that wall down so its easier to carve.
Then take your image and tape it on your pumpkin. I didnt get a picture of that part
Here’s what it looked like with the lights on
And with the lights off!
