Pumpkin Carving

I hate carving pumpkins. There. I’ve said it. But my kids love it, and I forget year to year how much I dislike it. Hubby has a skin allergy to pumpkin flesh (he can eat it, just can’t touch it raw), so carving duties fall to me.

We bought one of the kits with a book of patterns and the carving tools. Munchkin chose a headless guy, which ended up being more difficult than expected to complete. But he liked it, so that’s all that matters.

I think it ended up looking like Batman’s logo. But look carefully and you can tell that the top part is actually a top hat, and the bottom is a coat.

Seahawk decided he wanted a spider on his, so I just freehanded a basic spider shape. There was more cutting on his, but less details, so it was easier overall.

Happy (almost) Halloween!
