WHAT TO DO WITH THIS PUMPKIN?….Part 3

We have STACKED…..we have PAINTED…..hope your arm is strong, ’cause now we are going to CARVE!

Carve out flame pattern and use tiny white Christmas lights inside…

Left…use real pumpkin, then paint outside white…Right…carve squares,then paint …

Paint lantern designs, then carve out appropriate place for light to shine through…

Start carving at top, near stem…then continue in a spiral pattern…so as not to cut all the way through…

Find a unique old piece to display your hard work…

Carve branch pattern through top layer of pumpkin only…

Carve a design using elements of your choice…add painting…or not…

Enlarge a letter of your choice, then print it out and using transfer paper, copy image onto pumpkin. You may then carve it out…or paint it in…

Paint your pumpkin black or dark green. Then carve out the inside completely. Carve lines of differing widths down sides of pumpkin. Set a jar with water inside the pumpkin and arrange flowers…Note smaller sunflower…

A wood ring pattern carved into the first layer only…

Transfer a leaf pattern and carve into the top layer of the pumpkin…

If you are going to do much carving…this is the tool you need. The flimsy craft carvers are not very effective if you want a very precise line…

I have actually done the initial one, and have also done one like the vase. Pumpkin season is going fast! Get to carving…or painting…or stacking!!! Enjoy!
