When was the last time you carved a pumpkin? You don’t have to be a kid to enjoy this Halloween tradition. For most of us, it seems like a old childhood memory but have you ever considered doing it as an adult? I have. It’s actually quite fun for all ages and it is an inexpensive activity that you can enjoy when entertaining your friends and family!
You only need 2 supplies:
2. Knives/ carving tools
3. Or craft decorating supplies
Pumpkin carving is all about bringing out the kid in you. You don’t have to be creative. You only have to be adventurous. There are many ideas and free stencils available online which you can print or that come with the carving kits.
How about going a non-traditional route by stylizing your pumpkin without any cutting tools. Instead of carving it, you can use glue and other craft materials to decorate it!
· Paint or glitter
· Hat or buttons
· pipe cleaners
· empty toilet paper rolls
It doesn’t matter what way you choose to design your pumpkin as long as you are having fun doing it and it leaves you with a cool decoration to enjoy afterwards. To preserve your hard work, give it a bleach and water bath when finished. Carved pumpkins only last about 3-5 days or longer in a cooler climate. Want your pumpkin to last forever? There are artificial "carving" pumpkins available online for purchase and at your local craft store.
