Halloween pumpkins! Show me yours!

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 

We carved pumpkins today! We got together with a bunch of friends and all carved and had a great afternoon. Lucky we had help, because hubby's pumpkin was quite complicated and drove him nuts, so lucky he had help

So hubby did a Cylon which is a character from Battlestar Galactica, with red LED eyes that flash back and forth. I did a radioactive pumpkin using glow sticks on the inside

Those are really neat!
The guy we got our pumpkins from said when you carve them to put Vaseline on the carved parts and they will last longer. I can't do that though since I let the animals eat them and I don't want to hurt them... But if you want to make them last that's an idea..

Apparently you can put WD-40 on them too which I'll do tomorrow

Very cool Sarah!

Actually, plain Vaseline won't hurt critters -- in fact, it's the basis of anti-hairball gels like Petromalt.

Those are great pumpkins so far!

Sadly, my boyfriend and I have zero. Our apartment is at the dead end of a street and can't imagine there are people trick or treating so we did not get a pumpkin.

My SO's pumpkin

My Pumpkin (it's a crow in a cage)

My labs pumpkin, it's supposed to be the two hands in 'the creation of adam' holding a surgical mask - it was difficult

Carved into the back of that pumpkin

My 'craft' pumpkins (featuring Cello)

Our house!

This was our pumpkin. DH and DS came up with the design on their own. I think it turned out pretty cool!

What great pumpkins so far, they put mine to shame I had to carry mine back from town wedged in the puschair shopping basket and when I was halfway home going down the hill it rolled out and was rolling down the middle of the road, I had to run after it, lol, hence why it looks a bit bruised.

Wow, cool jack-o-lanterns; especially love Sarah's Cylon!

Here are ours, from left to right:
Our daughter's kitty pumpkin (don't you just want to scratch him under the chin, lol)
My pumpkin (hey I almost didn't do one but this fits my mood - taken from the "people of walmart" logo)
Husband's pumpkin - he always does magnificent ones!

Thanks for looking!

Here is ours. The little Trick or Treaters were pretty cautious walking by it.
