I was a busy bee today - I only got one carved. Five more to go


That looks great! Can't wait to see the others!

I started cursing you when the saw that came with the kit broke. It didn't help that the pumpkin that I carved the cat into wasn't a "carving pumpkin". BIG mistake. By the end I had a big knife in my hand and looked liek Jack the Ripper!

Did some of you use stencils or was that just freehand work?. I'm going to carve mine tonight and I'm looking for inspiration!

Smashing Pumpkins. This thread got me thinking that I should really go back to carving pumpkins; yours all look so good. My father-in-law brought some big whitish ones back from Eastern Europe, and I asked him for one this afternoon. Dummy me didn't put the pumpkin down when I was unlocking the front door, and I dropped it. Have you ever seen what granite steps do to pumpkins?

Mine were stencils! It was the first time I ever used them.

O.K. - Six hours later today . Here are the other five. If I didn't mention it before, I decided to to all skulls this year. Kind of ghoulish, but different for me. Sorry they are blurry.

OOOHHH, Chris, they're great! Appropriately creepy! Better watch that nobody steals them. And what have you done with the pumpkin "meat"?

Tricia -

I roasted the seeds. The guts went bye-bye. Do they celebrate Halloween in Germany?

They have for the past six or seven years, which reminds me that I have to go buy more candy tomorrow. I live in a small town, so people know that I'm American, and that their kids can expect candy if they want to go trick or treating.
Both Jamie and ZsaZsa love baked pumpkin. I slice it, pop it in the oven unspiced, and give it to them once it's lukewarm. The rest I use to make pumpkin pies, or bake for us using butter, cinnamon, and ginger. The seeds go to my father-in-law, who has some prostate problems (he's >80).

I also roasted the seeds, and have had WAY too many today!

Those look great Denise!

Wooo! Awesome job! It turned out great! 5 pumpkins for $10 ? What a steal! I gutted my pumpkins around a bonfire last night with my nephew. It was really fun. He informed his "Aunt Tillie" last night that for the best pumpkins, I need to go to Georgia. umm... O.K. Evidently he had seen it on The Weather Channel (P Allen Smith)

Also: Amusing thing I leaned today. Gibby is afraid of pumpkins, but not jack'o'lanterns.

Don't ya hate carving out those letters? I don't know if you ever saw the Pumpkin Masters "Nevermore" raven pattern but I was cursing alot when I was carving the letters.
post #49 of 51
Great job on the pumpkins everyone!! Makes me wish I had gotten some to carve. Then again, I don't think I have the patience!
post #50 of 51


these are awesome. I remember last year I was saying to Chris (captiva) that I must find somewhere that sells whole pumpkins and carve one (we dont do it here at all).... but of course I completely forgot about it.
