Pumpkin Carving – 2013

Pumpkin carving is becoming a bit of a family tradition in our household.

We don’t do Halloween parties/ trick or treating but we get into the spirit with a spot of carving. I’m not the most talented pumpkin carver but I will give it a go!

Then an email arrived in my inbox to see if I wanted to take part in a pumpkin carving challenge from Family Investments, no pressure now!


So after spending a few days looking through pinterest for ideas, we sat down yesterday to get started on a few designs.

I had to hand draw a few designs on before we started carving. Using the kids felt tip pens I drew straight onto the pumpkins then got started.

Here is how we go on and our finishing designs:

Not bad I didn’t think! What do you think of our designs?

We were fortunate to receive the pumpkins as part of this competition and some sweets but the rest is all our hard work!
