How We Carved Our Pumpkins…

Happy Halloween. Hope your having a fun and spooky day so far!?! I am just about to go out ‘Trick or Treating’ with the little two. Thought I would share how we carved our Pumpkins with you 🙂

What you need:

  • A Pumpkin or 2
  • A knife, (I knew my Pumpkin knife I’ve had years would eventually come in handy)
  • Some kind of face designs ~eyes, nose and mouth… either bough, you have drawn or printed off the internet
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Tea lights

What we did:

  1. First we picked out who wanted which face designs and cut them out.
  2. We then lightly stuck them in place onto the Pumpkins.
  3. After they had dried we set onto cutting the tops off the Pumpkins, or should I say I did!! the kids then disappeared and left mum to it!!
  4. Then I scooped all the Pumpkin seeds out.
  5. Onto cutting around the eyes, nose and mouth. I think my son picked the hardest shape on purpose, haha.
  6. All ready to light up when its dark…

About this post~We kindly got sent a Flora Halloween fun pack and we used some of the products in this post. All thoughts are my own…

    I love the setup with the pumpkins throwing up, it's ingenious, looks like some great designs were made there. Dropping by from Creative Mondays.
