Halloween Pumpkin Carving

It’s that time of year again to go wild with the face paint and walk the streets in search of sweets and mischief. One of the best traditions in our house has been the pumpkin carving. This is totally the domain of my OH. I’m so proud of him I couldn’t resist the urge to showcase last year’s offerings. We are set to try and beat these beauties this year. Stay tuned and they will be on show soon! You can also enter my Halloween Lantern Giveaway to add a little glitz to the night. So, back to last years carvings.

The evening started with the humble pumpkin…

A couple of years ago we brought a pack with all the carving tools in it. It was obviously the OH setting the scene for him to get serious!


The preparation has started and all of the insides are taken out. Sounds gruesome but it’s definitely in the Halloween theme. He uses the stencil for the main shape and marks out the outline.

I love them and the kids think they are fab! They will sit outside our house on Halloween with candles in them and let people know that we are joining in the fun.

How is your Halloween going so far? Do you love to get into the spirit of it, if so how do you celebrate?

Try some monster lollies from what2buy4kids they look pretty cool for Halloween. Great for trick or treat night!
