Halloween Pumpkin Carving


Happy Halloween!  Today we had a great time carving pumpkins. They look great with the other decorations on the front porch — we have spider webs, black spiders, and some orange lights.  Our inspiration this year was a white jack-o-lantern with big eyes from one of Martha Stewart magazines. These big green eyes were found at Party City. We also picked up some green glow sticks — I’m planning to put the glow sticks in the pumpkins.  Hopefully they glow an eerie green.  The mouth on the largest pumpkin was carved using a dremel tool.  Using that tool saved a lot of time and energy.  It also allowed me to better make curves and straight lines. I’m excited to see the trick-or-treaters in their costumes.  I hope they get a kick out of our jack-o-lanterns.
