October 6-7: Pumpkin Carving!

I love carving pumpkins. Love it. It’s definitely one of my favorite fall activities. I love carving pumpkins. That’s why this weekend, I carved some pumpkins!

I get my patterns from Stoneykins – They have TONS of awesome patterns. And they have a promotion right now for 50cents off of a credits package. Stoneykins Coupon

I carved two this weekend – a Big Bang Theory pumpkin and a pretty simple Candy Corn pumpkin. These were my first attempts at the 3-color shaded technique for carving, so it was definitely a learning process. Now, though, I think I’m ready to plug my Dremel in next weekend and really get to carving!

Both of these were carved on real pumpkins and the pictures are taken with a light bulb inside (as opposed to a tea light.)

Do you like carving? Post your best carve of the season and I’ll showcase them later in October!
